[Mailman-Users] Bounce handler - maybe needs tweaking?

I just diagnosed a problem today that I found by looking at the /mailman/logs/bounce file.  I kept seeing in there:

> address tcsound at core.com not a member.

I did find an address in the membership of: tcsound at megsinet.com, so I tried sending a message to that address.  Here's the results:

> 554 5.0.0 <tcsound at megsinet.com>... Service unavailable

Obviously Mailman's bounce handlers picked up the core.com part, but didn't pick up the megsinet.com address, which is what was bouncing from the list.  Can this be fixed?
