[Mailman-Users] Lists embedded in aliases

We have an "emergency" mail alias that forwards mail to 3 mailing lists.
When I sent mail to "emergency" I got mail back for each of the three lists
that said

   Your mail to 'Page-system' with the subject
       goin' for broke. this is a test.
   Is being held until the list moderator can review it for approval.
   The reason it is being held:
       Message has implicit destination

(Page-system was replaced by the name of whichever list was replying)

Obviously this is not desirable for an alias like "emergency" where the mail
needs to hit all the lists immediately. I tried to find an option that would
turn this feature off for each of the lists, but didn't find anything. It
would be ok with me to disable this behavior altogether for our installation
of mailman if that is what's necessary to disable it for this particular

Can anyone suggest how I would go about disabling this?

Thanks in advance. By the way we are on mailman-2.0beta2 on Solaris 2.7.
