No.  You will be OK if you deliver non-yahoo email to yahoo (assuming
that yahoo accepts email from you).

You *may* get into long term trouble (blacklisting) *IF* you deliver
yahoo email to any other company/person that checks yahoo's DMARC
record.   Yahoo's recent change (DMARC p=reject) stipulates for
everyone else to outright reject yahoo email from anyone other than
yahoo.   This has the potential for others to report your mailinglist
as doing something malicious.
