Default Mydns MX record failure

We have a Opensuse 11.1 the perfect setup ispconfig 3 setup, we are hosting about 10 domains in this server, with 2 of them we have the following problem:

When somebody tries to send an email to any account in this domains his postmaster answers

Sorry, I couldn't find a mail exchanger or IP address. (#5.4.4)

on ISPconfig I created an A record for a host called mail.faultydomain.com
then a MX record podatabaseinting to mail.faultydomain.com

I have reviewed the tables on the ispconfig and the rows for these domain are exactly the same taht for all the other domains, but when you do dig mx faultydomain.com the answer is:

faultydomain.com. 86013 IN MX 10 mail.faultydomain.com.faultydomain.com.

instead of

faultydomain.com. 86013 IN MX 10 mail.faultydomain.com.

I have not been able to start mydns with verbose option turned on to see in the log files how the querys are answered

any ideas?

You missed to add the dot at the end of mail.faultydomain.com. in the MX record.
