As long as the queues are on the same node the message payload will be 
shared between them, not copied.

Persistence and durability in AMQP terminology refer to preserving 
messages / queues across broker restarts.

 From the above description it doesn't look like you need either of 
these - plain, non-exclusive, non-durable queues with well-known names 
should be sufficient.

And even if you did use durable queues and persistent messages, only one 
copy of each message would be persisted per node.
