I thought my reply covered this (to an extent) but maybe not specifically. A penalty may not be instituted but the duplicate content gets ignored. Your content will likely be the dupe content. So whether or not you duck a penalty, your content won't be recognized or counted any way according to Mr. Cutts. Unless you have a highly established site, one that is more established than the article submission site(s) you are submitting to, you won't be getting credit for the article anyway, so why waste your time?
