Well I can connect to the mail server via all three mx records:
vdh.state.vt.us. 86400 IN MX 10 mx2.state.vt.us.
vdh.state.vt.us. 86400 IN MX 10 mx0.state.vt.us.
vdh.state.vt.us. 86400 IN MX 10 mx1.state.vt.us.
mx0.state.vt.us. 86400 IN A 188.8.131.52
mx1.state.vt.us. 86400 IN A 184.108.40.206
mx2.state.vt.us. 86400 IN A 220.127.116.11
