You can change the aliases file

     /var/lib/mailman/data/aliases (on my Mailman 2.1.9 Ubuntu)

by adding to the line:

     LISTNAME-bounces:  "|/var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman bounces LISTNAME"

this text:

     ,user at example.com

This, I believe, will send the bounces for the LISTNAME both to the
normal Mailman bounce processor and to the specified e-mail address.
Note that if Mailman auto-regenerates the alias file, your change
will be lost.
