Are you sure? According to RFC 974,
"Each MX matches a domain name with two pieces of data, a preference value
... and the name of a host."
There's no mention about IP addresses, and all examples use host names.
Also, in RFC 1035, [quote]:
EXCHANGE A <domain-name> which specifies a host willing to act as
a mail exchange for the owner name.
MX records cause type A additional section processing for the host
specified by EXCHANGE.

Alas, sendmail isn't a good example wrt following rfc definitions (and
security also :-)

I would say, if you are looking for a nice MTA, give qmail a try
