If they are getting a "bounce score" in the bounce log, it means the
list IS sending and the messages are bouncing. If you want to see why,
go to the list's Bounce options page, make sure that
bounce_notify_owner_on_disable is Yes and set bounce_score_threshold
to 1. Then the first bounce will disable the user, and the list
owner(s) will be sent a copy of the bounce. Then, if you feel the
bounce is erroneous, you can raise the bounce_score_threshold and
re-enable the user (from the Membership Management... pages).

The above assumes that a direct e-mail to the user doesn't bounce.
