That is correct.

What you need is to have the MX for the email domain of the lists and
the web domain of the lists be the same server or at least servers that
can share the Mailman file system via NFS or some other file sharing

In your case, if the lists are addressed as LISTNAME at example.com with
the MX for example.com being the Mailman host, you will need to have a
domain for the web interface, e.g. http://lists.example.com/mailman/...,
which also resolves to the Mailman host.
