You are confusing delivery notices with post-delivery notices.

It of course makes sense that the original author be notified if the 
never made it as far as the list.  If, however, it is deemed important that
the author be notified of failure to be delivered to *the end user*, the 
tool in this case is:

3798 Message Disposition Notification. T. Hansen, Ed., G. Vaudreuil,
    Ed.. May 2004. (Format: TXT=64049 bytes) (Obsoletes RFC2298) (Updates
    RFC3461, RFC2046) (Status: DRAFT STANDARD)

*iff* you consider the message not delivered when it arrives at the list
