I didn't see this answered in the other replies in this thread.
No it is not legal. It needs to be a single host name which is the name
which will be exposed in email addresses generated by mailman. I.e.,
Mailman will advertise the list posting address as listname at host_name,
the request address as listname-request at host_name, etc, so it should
be the single host name you prefer to use for the list.
Mailman also sends certain owner notices to listname-owner at host_name,
and it expects to receive those back as messages for the 'owner' which
it resends to the actual owners and moderators. Thus, host_name must
also be a host that the outgoing MTA knows how to route back to
