Actually, there's quite a big difference nowadays between the two:
r-bugs at r-project.org is aliased to r-bugs at stat.math.ethz.ch
which 1) applies our anti-virus/spam filtering 
      2) forwards to r-bugs@*.dk

For that reason, I have advocated to advertize the
@r-project.org address *only*.
OTOH, that reason may become much less relevant when *.dk will
have its own anti-spam filters "real soon now" :-)
