Well, as you can see, the answer is quite short. Understanding it is
another thing :-( SOA and MX are two types of DNS resource record. I've
never seen a newbies guide to DNS - I wish I had:-) O'Reilly (as usual)
publish the definitive guide to DNS and BIND (insects on the cover AFAIR -
I'm a few miles away from my copy) and you might find more info at the
BIND home page at www.isc.org/bind.html.
