Mail Records

I have a domain named I want to set two mail servers on this domain. The main purpose to set these mail servers is to have two different mail server, as if we have two different domains => so it is not one main server and the other one for backup.

An MX record for domain is already existing (all mails sent to are delivered to, so we have

@ 3600 IN MX 1

Can we add new MX records for the second mail server?

For example, we set up a new subdomain that points to our new mail server (at ip So that all mail that are sent to will be sent to
