In short, right now under the current default mailman code base, you can't.

The list names MUST be unique.

Now having said that, there are ways to make it happen but they are 
not simple and may require code modifications. cPanel has modified 
their distribution of mailman to munge the domain with the list name 
behind the scenes to support this.

I believe there is another way to do so by running multiple instances 
of mailman in separate directories. You would have to set up your 
aliases or mail routing to deliver to the appropriate instance for 
each domain. However, I don't know exactly how to do that.
