Are you refering to RFC 2142?

"However, if a given service is offerred, then the associated
mailbox name(es) must be supported, resulting in delivery to a
recipient appropriate for the referenced service or role."

For a provider of e-mail and DNS, the following should apply:

   -----------    ----------------    ---------------------------
   POSTMASTER     SMTP                [RFC821], [RFC822]
   HOSTMASTER     DNS                 [RFC1033-RFC1035]

I think this is what you should be able to expect from a company
that offers a non-trivial service as mentioned above...
