Arrow Unknown MX record and Reverse PTR question for Google Apps email

I have 2 questions and I think they are both related and should be simple answers.

I run ISPConfig on a server with a couple of domains and DNS is setup through my registrar. Now I have set up google apps for email. The individual websites also send emails (order notifications etc). I followed the google directions for changing the mx records at my registrar but I still see one old mx record:

Check "case-mod.com":

Your MX records that were reported by your nameservers are:

0 mail.anaselectronics.com No A Record (no glue either)
10 aspmx.l.google.com (no glue)
20 alt1.aspmx.l.google.com (no glue)
30 alt2.aspmx.l.google.com (no glue)
40 aspmx2.googlemail.com (no glue)
50 aspmx3.googlemail.com (no glue)
1. Where is this old 0 priority record coming from? I have not yet changed reverse PTRs, did reverse PTR automatically add a mx record? or does ispconfig broadcast dns?

Note that the email is coming through fine since there is no A record for mail.anas so the correct google records get used, but google thinks my dns is not setup correctly and also the blackberry service doesn't recognize this email address as a google account. I think clearing out that first record will correct both these issues.

2. What should be the correct reverse ptr for my IP(s) now that I am using google apps for email; my server does send emails using sendmail.
