This came up just a couple of weeks ago. Filter on one of these two

List-Id: <bind-users.isc.org>
X-List-ID: <bind-users.isc.org>

I do this in procmail, to drop list mail into individual mailboxes:

* ^(List-Id|(X-)?Mailing-List|X-List):\/.*

    * LISTID ?? ^.*[<]\/[^@>\.]*

    * LISTID ?? ^\/[^@\.]*

You could just as easily pipe through formail and add your own [BIND-USERS] 
tag to Subject:
