unrouteable mail domain errors only for some email ids

    i have noticed that our server running rh9/WHM/Cpanel, bounces back mail from certain domains which have their MX records set as an IP address and not the hostname. this we found after doing a "MAILTEST" at, which displays the following for the email id to which mails from our server bounce back..

    Host Preference IP(s) [Country] 10 [Bogus MX record - is supposed to be a hostname, not an IP!]

    Emails from hotmail/yahoo to this email id work fine, so it is a hard time convincing my customer as to why the mail bounces only from our server. Can someone help resolve this.
