Publishing ADSP should mandate MX records be published when the domain
intends to receive email. By making this mandate, not finding an MX
record will prevent subsequent transactions attempting to retrieve
policy records. Such a convention reduces the amount of undesired
traffic for domains not involved with SMTP.
