How many members can be included in a domain local distribution list?

What is the maximum number of members that can be included in a domain local distribution list?

Requires Free Membership to View

I was unable to discover a definitive answer to this question. I did find one reference that implied distribution lists can contain hundreds or thousands of members. Since this is just another Active Directory group, I see no reason why it cannot contain as many members as any other group. Thus, the maximum members should be unlimited.
