My wife had free domain parking and web redirecting from namezero, and
the NS records in the zone didn't match the delegating NS records from
the parent, at all. The domain was unresolvable intermittently until I 
notified their tech support of the problem. The problem never 
resurfaced after they fixed the in zone NS records to match the 
delegating records.

They never even thanked me, either, and I noticed they had the same
setup for many other domains before that, all fixed after my
notification ;)

Never ever relay emails based solely on a user-provided header. 
Down that path leads madness, despair, and the RBL.
