    Question two ips pointing to the same mail.domain.com

    ...is this a bad idea?
    what are the pros/cons about this type of setup?

    a mx lookup of mail.domain.com shows both mx ip addresses...
    does one need to be set to a higher priority?

    believe me this wasn't an choice, I had no other option but to set it up like this.

    Any insight would help, thanks.

    56.5.5.489 \
    192.168.1.152/mail.domain.com
    56.5.5.421 /

    both public ips, using the firewall nat directed to an internal IP.

    Based on the link above, I guess it's all good!

    Seams like I have a load balance setup!
