getmxrr is designed to return a list of mx records found for a host.

According to smtp rfcs, if no mx records are found, then the hostname's A record is 
considered to be the lowest mx.

Take for example the following hostname:

This is a separate zone which does not have any MX records.  It has an A record and 
that suffices for people to receive email on that hostname.

getmxrr should be changed so that it should also return true if:

no mx records are found, BUT an A record exists for the hostname.

Because smtp rfc's state that if there are no mx records, the A record should be 
considered to be the lowest priority "mx" record.
