The 'mail' command on 3 is broken. The machine (1 or 2) which accepts
the mail has the list's  Privacy options... -> Recipient filters ->
require_explicit_destination set to No and the other machine has it set
to Yes.

If you wish to pursue the broken mail command what  output do the
following commands produce on machine 3:

ls -l `which mail`

ls -l `which sendmail`

ls -l `which mailx`

and if any of those outputs is a symlink such as

/usr/bin/mail -> /etc/alternatives/mail

what does

ls -l /etc/alternatives/mail

(i.e. ls -l of the target of the symlink) produce?
