When you look up a *host*, you look for A/PTR or CNAME. When you look up
an MX, you can look up an MX for a *domain*, *or* you could look up an
MX for a *host*. I expect in most cases if you query for MX for
SMTP*Host* you'll get nothing -- I wonder how many admins define MXers
for each host these days.

It shouldn't need FQDN though, it should add search domain suffix(es)
from /etc/resolv.conf.
