I'm not expert majordomo but,

there is majordomo documentation regarding the alias file, I believe in the
installation files,

I recall  you create an aliases file as /etc/majordomo.aliases

and ref it in /etc/mail/  after reference to /etc/aliases add

This is a majordomo configuration, check your install files.
