A very simple solution could be: if you have an attribute called 'mail' where
the normal mail-address is stored, just add another 'mail' attribute with the
address of the mailinlist to each subscriber.


dn: hugo
mail: hugo@domain
mail: list1@domain
mail: list2@domain

dn: walter
mail: walter@domain
mail: list2@domain

This works at least with postfix (I did not try it with sendmail).
