no address records (A or AAAA) for mx record

I have a zone defined with sub zones.  The zone has mx records that 
point to the sub zone.

Such as the mx records for -> MX      10 has an A record defined, but when I run 
named-checkzone I get an error:
zone '' has no address records 
(A or AAAA)

everything is working fine, so I am just curious if I'm doing something 
wrong.  Everything is dynamic, and I'm having trouble creating MX 
records with nsupdate, so I am wondering if this is related.
