OT question about dns

Does anyone know how to use dig or some other tool to query for TXT records in 

I'm working on implementing spf on a small domain that I maintain, and it 
doesn't seem to be working (according to the validators I'm using.)  I'd like 
to be able to query the dns server myself, but I can't seem to find anything on 
how to extract or view TXT records for a domain.

I tried dig @server domain TXT and dig @server domain MX, but I don't get the 
TXT record.
