INN processes messages immediately unless it's backlogged.

The only thing that can cause a fixed delay is if you choose to use 
nntpsend out of cron (most people use innfeed).  Otherwise, there's 
nothing you need to do.

You've got a couple options here.  The most common is to install (and 
configure!) Cleanfeed, which is a transit filter.  You can also write your 
own Perl posting filter, if you prefer something less complicated.
