This still looks bogus to me -- localhost is more typically on a line by 
itself, tied to the loopback interface, for example:   localhost.localdomain localhost

Other than moving the localhost to a line by itself, I *think* this is ok. 
I'm not a DNS god, though, so others may well correct me.

But I suspect that your ultimate problem is one that was suggested by 
someone else (Mark?) -- you've got a bad value set for DEFAULT_URL_HOST. 
Fixing that in mm_cfg.py will probably help.

YMMV; I'm merely a dabbler in the mailman configuration business.
