you cannot, exchange will always attempt to send to all members within a DL

endital1097 is correct.

You do have one option: Add the DL to your new message to the recipient field. Click the + before the DL name and it will expand the list to individual address. Remove the ones you don't want.

If you want to hide the addresses even further, do this but in the Bcc field.

True, though you mind find something close to the request that you have if you configure a transport rule within exchange 2010: Exchange Management Console -> Organization Configuration -> Hub Transport -> Transport Rules

I feel like I found the problem.

The users that are not showing up in the Outlook OAB don't have an email address in the emaill address field of the General tab.

They do have valid SMTP addresses though. I guess exchange didn't update that field.

Again, they show under OWA though.

I'm writing a PS script to update that field. After that I will regenerate the address book and hopefully all will be well.
