What exactly is the senddigests command run by cron?

Is it being run as the Mailman user? I.e. is it in Mailman's user
crontab or if in /etc/cron.d/ is the user field the Mailman user?

What happens if you run cron/senddigests manually as the Mailman user?

What's in Mailman's error log at noon or what gets posted to the site
lost at noon. I.e., if the cron is in Mailman's crontab and there's no
MAILTO= in the crontab, errors get mailed to the Mailman user and
normally this gets delivered to the site list.
