When the message you send to the superior list reaches the sublist, the 
sublist does not see itself in either the To: or Cc: headers. On the 
default MM setup lists usually hold such messages for moderation in case 
they are spam.

There is an option in the admin web GUI (for the subordinate) list where 
you can tell the list to accept incoming posts that do not have that list 
in the To: or Cc: headers. I think it is on the Privacy or one it its 
subordinate pages; sorry I do not have a system at hand to check exactly 
which web admin GUI page it is.
