Assuming the list has just the 2 members and the list mail is being
sent to others, I'm guessing that the MTA is delivering the mail to
this list to a different list or perhaps to a different Mailman

Did you perhaps make MTA aliases for this list by editing other aliases
incompletely. E.g., by copying

list1:  "|/path/to/mail/mailman post list1"

and changing them to

list2:  "|/path/to/mail/mailman post list1"

instead of

list2:  "|/path/to/mail/mailman post list2"
