There are examples of adding MX records in the section of the Cricket book
on DNS Dynamic Update.

If mail.twu.edu is the server that mail for user at host.twu.edu should be
sent to, you would do:
>update add host.twu.edu. IN MX 10 mail.twu.edu.
Basically, the rest of the line after "update add" should be identical to
the line you would enter into the DB file manually.
