Couple of comments here too...

Is it necessary to try each MX for EVERY nameserver?    24 attempts  
to get mail to an SOA email address seems excessive.
Also, if you're going to be reporting mail failures, you really  
should learn the difference between tempfail (like in the case of  
greylisting) and real failures.

I think zonecheck only tried each MX once, but still didn't grok  

And this is aimed at zonecheck, I have issues with a _DNS_ checker  
running open relay tests...
