Try the following test:

Pick a name that has both A and MX records, but isn't currently in cache.

dig <name> a @server
dig <name> any @server

I have no idea what MS DNS does, but I'm pretty certain that if you 
direct this to the BIND server the second query will only return the A 
record, not the MX record.
