The standard installation default in $prefix/Mailman/Defaults.py is 
DEFAULT_REPLY_GOES_TO_LIST = 0 which is what you want.

DEFAULT_REPLY_GOES_TO_LIST = 0 says do not munge the Reply-To header; as a 
consequence it should go to the Poster.

If you set DEFAULT_REPLY_GOES_TO_LIST to other than 0 in your mm_cfg.py 
then you can change the option to Poster for a particular list by selecting 
the Poster radio button next to the 'Where are replies to list messages 
directed? ' option on the list's General Options web admin GUI page.
