you can create a DL manually and then follow the command to create contact.

Import-Csv book.csv|%{New-MailContact -Name $_.Name -DisplayName $_.Name -ExternalEmailAddress $_.ExternalEmailAddress -FirstName $_.FirstName -LastName $_.LastName} | ForEach {Add-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "123" -Member $_.Name}

Create a file with name, displayname, externalemailaddress and save it as csv.

You can add this as a members of DL in same command. the DL is 123.

Contact and Distribution Groups

I think you firstly have to have the below
1. Contacts for users with External email address in your environment
2. Then create a DL\DynamicDL and have the Contacts as filter for this DL or have them added

This should work as you want .... if queries do let me know
