The advise you got was right, sql server can accept sms messages in much higher
rate than phone.

Right, but not SQL but smsd will send messages stored in database.

I'm not Nagios expert so somebody can find better integration with Nagios.
Try to use something like this:

Command_line            /usr/bin/printf "INSERT INTO outbox (number, text) 
values ('$CONTACTPAGER$', '%b ***Nagios***\n $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$\n $HOSTALIAS$ 
is $HOSTSTATE$');" ¦ mysql [mysql_parameters] smsd_db_name

It works for me from command line but it is not tested with Nagios. Maybe
you will need to play with " and '. I don't know what %b is for.
