What is milter-spiff supposed to report when a SPF record contains
mx:smtp.secureserver.net and the DNS times-out for reading the MX record?

# dig ungar.us TXT
ungar.us.               3088    IN      TXT     "v=spf1 a mx ptr
mx:smtp.secureserver.net mx:mailstore1.secureserver.net
include:secureserver.net -all"

libspf2-1.2.5 reports:
# spfquery -helo=rwcrmhc15.comcast.net -ip=204.127.192.85
-sender=xxxxx@ungar.us
StartError
Context: Failed to query MAIL-FROM
ErrorCode: (26) DNS lookup failure
EndError
error (temporary)

spfquery: encountered temporary error during SPF processing of domain of
ungar.us

during SPF processing of domain of ungar.us) client-ip=204.127.192.85;
