I believe you do need a preference. Most, if not, all DNS servers have it 
stored in their tables whether you have one or multiple mail servers.

Does anyone know if you MUST have the "preference" number in an MX record, or 
can it be omitted?


Is this OK: IN A IN MX


or does it HAVE TO be like this: IN A IN MX 10
