Ah...this works well. Thank you very much Nick Winter!

The solution is not really to do them in columns, but rather to indent
the second (and subsequent) lines enough that it looks like you've got
columns.

You want to do something like:

di "{p 0 3 0}B: {res}`blist'"

This will format the results as a paragraph with the first line indented
zero, the second (and subsequent lines) indented 3, and the right-side
indented zero.

See

. help smcl##paragraph_mode

for a discussion of the smcl {p} directive.
