MX record lookup problem.

I have a domain name registered with Enom. does not refer to any host, so there is no A or CNAME 
record for that, but there is an MX record for, which 
points to

The problem is that if an MX query for jandg-cooper is preceded by an A 
record query, then the MX query fails:

  $ host -t MX mail is handled by 10

  $ host
  Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

  $ host has address

  $ host -t MX
  Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

I'm not sure whether this is a problem with Bind or Enom.

Any clues?
