Exchange does NOT require you to have an MX record in your AD domain's DNS.
Period.
 
The only reason to have one would be for non-Exchange mail servers operating
on your internal network.

I don't think that's the case.
in fact you should have an internal MX record in your internal DNS, so your
internal email wouldn't have to be routed out then bak inside.
asus77x, I am not sure what command did you use, but here is an exapmle:
lets say you have a domain named exhcnagedomain.com
in your DNS you have a forward lookup zone called exchangedomain.com, and in
this domain you should have your MX record.
from the command line:
nslookup
set type=mx
exchangedomain.com
 
the answer should be the exchange server FQDN, and the IP Address.
 
hope that helps

In most cases there is no reason to have an MX record in your AD domain's
(internal) DNS.
 
You only need an MX record for your external DNS.
 
If your internal DNS and external DNS share the same domain name, then your
command line query must select the external DNS server.
