This is the section of Smokeping.pm which you're interested in:

sub sendmail ($$$){
    my $from = shift;
    my $to = shift;
    $to = $1 if $to =~ /<(.*?)>/;
    my $body = shift;
    if ($cfg->{General}{mailhost} and
        my $smtp = Net::SMTP->new([split /\s*,\s*/, $cfg->{General}{mailhost}],Timeout=>5) ){
        $smtp->to(split(/\s*,\s*/, $to));
    } elsif ($cfg->{General}{sendmail} or -x "/usr/lib/sendmail"){
        open (M, "|-") || exec (($cfg->{General}{sendmail} || "/usr/lib/sendmail"),"-f",$from,$to);
        print M $body;
        close M;
    } else {
        warn "ERROR: not sending mail to $to, as all methodes failed\n";

I haven't tested this, but just reading it appears either to split a
list of addresses on the comma or pass the list directly to the MTA.
So in either case your first attempt:

numberone at test.com,numbertwo at test.com

should be fine.

Can we see your smokeping configuration?

Of course TMTOWTDI.  An alternative would be to set up a mailing list. :)
