No, there is no such setting.

Postfix should queue everything it can't deliver to Mailman and refuse to 
accept any more mail if it's own local queues are full, and the remote end 
should then queue the messages.  Anything that can be delivered to Mailman 
while the Mailman queue runners are shut down will be put into a Mailman 
queue, to be processed once Mailman comes back up.

There's queues all over the place.
