Thema:        nsupdate with bind9

I have nsupdate set up with keys with my bind9 server and I added/deleted 
A and CNAME records.. however Im having problems finding info/examples on 
how to add MX records.
Can someone send me or point me to a location where I can get all ( or all 
the most major ) examples on how to add all types of dns records ???
example to add an A record with nsupdate:
update delete A
update add 86400 A
Above would be example format Im looking for.. I know you need to add 
before updating.. I just need to know the lines to add MX records and 
better yet all types of records..
thanks in advance
