I don't have strong feelings about this.  Approximately one quarter of
subscribers only get the digest, and due to multiple complaints about
too much Phenix-related email, I've decreased the frequency with which
digests are sent out, several times now.  (They used to be at least
daily, but I changed that on Monday.)  So it may make more sense to
reply-to-all, but I can't speak for everyone else.  If you're replying
to one of the developers, however, we all get instant delivery.
