I believe there is no way to guarantee once-and-only-once delivery in the
face of failures; there will always be race conditions that allow the two
sides of the interaction to believe different things about whether the
transaction succeeded or failed, and you have to choose whether you'd
rather have at-least-once delivery or at-most-once delivery.  Pick your
poison, and design your system to be tolerant of whichever one you pick.
