The mailing list is the envelope sender of mail sent to the list. For

If any mail is rejected or bounced (ie, initially accepted for
delivery but later a DSN is returned indicating a delivery failure)
then that is a delivery failure. If you do not like what your
receiving mail systems reject or bounce that is not a Mailman problem.
