Zonecheck appears to be correct and you can test with dig, too:

% dig @NS1.verizonbusiness.com CNAME esmtp00.verizonbusiness.com   

; <<>> DiG 9.5.0-P2 <<>> @NS1.verizonbusiness.com CNAME 
esmtp00.verizonbusiness.com
; (1 server found)

The error message is not perfect (it should indicate the authoritative
name server of verizonbusiness.com not of digex.com) but there is
indeed a server failure on your side.

That's not the point: Zonecheck wanted to check that ("MX is not an
alias") and it was impossible (because of the spurious SERVFAIL).
