What is in the mail server logs related to the mail to list at VIP?

There will be issues with your configuration. You are not sharing
qfiles/ (/var/spool/mailman/ in the RHEL package) so Mailman must be
running on both machines and you must share the locks/
(/var/lock/mailman/ in the RHEL package) directory in any case or you
will lose data due to race conditions.
