Who is right or wrong is a matter of historical perspective.
The fact is this:
All current/modern DNS clients will support the resolution of a CNAME
as part of a MX expansion process.
No. That should be '_Many_ current/modern...' or even '_Most_...', but
to say 'All' is presumptive.
Well Pardon me!
To me, "Current and Modern" DNS client software takes into account the
idiosyncrasies of the system, including this very common issue. So if a
current/modern DNS client is ignorant of such issues, well, think what
you wish - it will be viewed as "buggy" and if you deal customer service
business, it will be your problem.
