qk.com.au has 2 MXes with the same priority:

$ host -t mx qk.com.au
qk.com.au           	MX	10 qk.com.au.
qk.com.au           	MX	10 mail.qk.com.au.

They are different servers though. There's a 50% chance for mail
to land on qk.com.au, and a 50% chance to land on mail.qk.com.au.
Are you sure this is right ?

Shouldn't it be

qk.com.au               MX      10 qk.com.au.
qk.com.au               MX      20 mail.qk.com.au.

.. or something? Check that mail isn't stuck on the wrong box.
