I disagree. Your view is old school, and todays a new world. The
trend is that people want to know when their messages are not

come back up, is a disservice to the recipient and the sender. They'd
rather just know the message didn't get through, and they know they
must call up the subscriber instead.
Secondly, having backup MX records for store and forward servers can
create a horrible open door for Spammers.
I totally agree, backup MX records hurt about as much as they help.
