What is the "return-receipt-to" field ?

  See  RFC 3464  (and RFC 2076)

Some MTA (eg : Lotus) interpret that field as a MDN request.
Is it legal and clearly defined in RFC ?

  Completely non-standard.

not only that, but it's completely incompatible with the original use of the
field, which was to request a delivery report, not a receipt notification.

return-receipt-to fields should be ignored, or deleted.

Also, apply a clue-by-four to the originating MUA, which probably intended
to use 'Disposition-Notification-To:' (RFC2298, section 2.1).
