not even per-host. Different RR types for the same host can have different

mail		1d	IN	TXT	"v=spf1 a -all"
mail		1h	IN	MX	0	mail

Only same RR types MUST have same value so e.g.:

mail            1m      IN      A       xxx.xxx.xxx.52; dhbex1
mail            2m      IN      A       xxx.xxx.xxx.54; dhbex2

would be incorrect and server will choose one of those to implement for all
RRs (see rfc 2182 section 5.2)
