I think MX record is documented fairly clearly on e.g. wikipedia. The
rest of it spelled out in Defaults.py in my installation:

- "delivery module for *outgoing* mail" (emphasis mine: "outgoing" means
MX doesn't apply), and

- "make sure the host exists and is resolvable".

Presumably mailman is not doing anything fancier than
 import socket
and your non-fqdn SMTPHost will not resolve if you try the above in
python shell.
