The reject message itself may bounce if the non-member address is
undeliverable. This bounce is normally unnoticed because the
undeliverable address is normally parsed from the bounce message and
ignored since it is a non-member. In those cases where the bounce
format is unrecognized, the bounce will be sent to the owner if
bounce_unrecognized_goes_to_list_owner is true.
