If you really need the list entries in both virtual_alias_maps and
transport_maps, you could simply add

/usr/sbin/postmap /etc/mailman/virtual-mailman

to the end of your virtual_to_transport file.

However, it seems to me unlikely that you actually need both since they
both should accomplish the same thing in different ways.
