Yes.  FreeBSD's sendmail install doesn't accept mail for the entire
domain, it only accepts for the localhost.

Try sending the mail to listname at hostname.domain.com.  If that works but
the other doesn't, try added domain.com to /etc/mail/local-host-names
and restarting sendmail (cd /etc/mail && make restart).
