Where is NDR sent when I "Send As" a Distribution List

Hi all,
Using Exchage 2003 on Windows 2003 Server with Outlook 2003 client.

I am Sending As a distribution list to 100+ recipients.

Enter 100+ names in the To: field
Enter DLName@MyCompany.com in the From: field (I have given myself permission to Send AS this list)
Compose mail and Send

Some recipients (external)  are reporting that they have not recieved mail.

Message tracking says
Message transferred to some domains but also state:

SMTP:Non Delivered Report (NDR) Generated

but as this is a distribution list, and has no mailbox as such is this simply lost in the ether or is it stored somewhere (e.g logfile) where I can view to see who has not recieved the mail and why.

Thanks in advance,

Found it in in Active Directory under Distribution List Properties, Exchange Advanced, Send Delivery Reports to ... I set this a group owner and made myself the group owner.

Checked in smtp virtul server\messages Vahliik. this was blank. Looks like I could have done this here to recieve all such NDRs, so you can have the points.
