I'm not sure why you think this might be a DNS problem. Both
mail.occa.state.ok.us and mxi.occa.state.ok.us resolve on the Internet.
Whether the addresses to which they resolve are "appropriate" or not, we
have no way of knowing. You should know your own network well enough to
tell whether those addresses are bogus or not.
