Presumably, you are not actually running Mailman on the mirror. The nn
held messages waiting notices com from a Mailman cron job.  You have
several choices.

1) Don't mirror Mailman's crontab.

2) Don't run crond on the mirror server (probably the best option).

3) Update the mirror frequently enough so that changes on the
production server are reflected on the mirror before Mailman's crons
run (this won't avoid duplicate notices when there are held messages
on the production server).

4) modify Mailman's crontab to only run the jobs on the production
