It doesn't require two host names. Perhaps you are confused by the
reference to DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST and DEFAULT_URL_HOST. These are
settings in your current Mailman. They may or may not be the same
names. DEFAULT_URL_HOST is the host name in the URLs for the Mailman
web interface, and DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST is the domain for Mailman email.

The mailman_router definition includes

    require_files = MM_LISTCHK



This says that the mailman_router and associated mailman_transport are
only used to deliver mail to list at ... (or list-admin at ... etc.) if the
file M_HOME/lists/list/config.pck exists which will be true if and
only if 'list' is a mailman list.
