? us.netrek.org. IN MX 100 smtpgrey-1.real-time.com.
? IN MX 100 smtpgrey-2.real-time.com.

How to handle us.netrek.org MX? Options:
1. Keep current MX @ RTE.
2. MX to GA netrek.org, and have it also handle @us.netrek.org.

Current lists.netrek.org is:
lists A 63.170.91.7 ; owner: tanner, requestor: ahn, updated by: ahn 20090408
lists MX 100 smtpgrey-1.real-time.com. ; owner: tanner, requestor: ahn, updated by: ahn 20090319
lists MX 100 smtpgrey-2.real-time.com. ; owner: tanner, requestor: ahn, updated by: ahn 20090319

Should this be CNAME to shadowknight.real-time.com.?

I propose choosing one of {mailman,lists}netrek.org as preferred FQDN and silently deprecate (but retain alias) for other.
