Firstly, where you're using "abc123.com", I presume you don't actually
mean "abc123.com"[1].

Secondly, I know *nothing* about what cPanel offers, let alone how
they've re-modified Mailman -- apart from what I've read in previous
posts (and there are a few).

Using a different name on "Host B" (differing to "Host A") 
might alllow, for say, <list-foo at hostb.example.com> something like

    (a) ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse /mailman/ (and /pipermail) to hostb

    (b) forward the mails for the mailman parts (e.g,
        to hostb

in your scenario.

It would almost certainly be easier/less hassle, to use a separate
name for hostb (e.g., make hostb "lists.example.org", and then just
use normal look-ups to point your lists (mail and web) to hostb),
with all the Mailman stuff taking place on hostb
