That is by design. You can only add  users or security groups - DLs do
not have any security information associated. You can use an
email-enabled security group to work around this.

If you are using AD to manage your DLs, you can actually have a security group managing a distrbution list. Here's how! blog.imanami.com/.../Distribution-list-managed-by-a-security-group-or-vice-versa
