Because the incoming MTA at msb.k12.mo.us does not know where to
properly return a delivery status nonification and it is sending it to
the author of the original mail (you) instead of the envelope sender.

Unfortunately, these non-compliant servers abound. There's nothing you
can do about it other than possibly redirecting it to the appropriate
-bounces' address at the site you mailed to.
