Why?  There are many different reasons why you might want this, and the 
best solution for your situation will depend on the why.

You can also:

A)  Make your list a moderated-post list so that replies to the digest 
don't get sent out to the rest of the list.
B)  Use Privacy Options -> Spam filters to reject replies that quote 
your list's digest subject (e.g. "listname digest").
C)  You can set an explicit reply-to which applies to all sent messages 
not just the digests, see the General Options section on the admin page:
