Split DNS should not be needed to solve this.  Simply install Mailman as 
it's own sub-domain (maillists.example.com?) and have the Sendmail 
gateway route that domain to the server that Mailman is running on.  (It 
/could/ be the Sendmail server, but it does not really matter.)

Then when Mailman sends email to your users (i.e. user1 at example.com) it 
will route to the existing MX for example.com just like normal email 
would.  -  If for some reason you set up other mail routing, email from 
Mailman would happily follow that configuration.

If you would like more details, pleas more clearly specify your existing 
environment and what you are thinking about doing and would like to do.
