You could have just said so?

$ host yahho.com
yahho.com has address 64.40.102.44
$ host -t mx yahho.com
yahho.com mail is handled by 0 nullmx.domainmanager.com.
$ host nullmx.domainmanager.com
nullmx.domainmanager.com has address 0.0.0.0

Several mailservers already check for loopback (127.0.0.0/8) or private network addresses (like 192.168.0.0/16) but I had not seen this one before, and apparently neither had the mail software, because it happily kept on trying to deliver it to itself until it saw too many hops and gave up. Bah.
