It depends on the delivery method you chose. If you use the Sendmail module,
it'll probably pass it through /etc/aliases. If you use the SMTP module and
the localhost as delivery point, it'll pass through /etc/aliases too. It's
damned easy to test, though: disable the filter, make a new digest list,
subscribe yourself to it, and mail ;)
