With the standard installation of Mailman, you can't have the same list
name on more than one domain name.  You can only do that if you're running
cPanel and their version of Mailman which they've changed to allow the same
list name on more than one domain.

I have no details on what cPanel changed to allow that, but it's similar to
what you're doing here, the list webpages end with listname_domain, instead
of just listname so Mailman sees the list as listname_domain at domain but
aliases it to listname at domain in the list webpages and the welcome emails
and so on.
