Exchange ignoring MX records

As far as I can determine the SMTP service is ignoring the MX preference listed in DNS for some sites? It has repeatedly chosen the highest number instead of the lowest number. Now usually this wouldn't be a problem, but some sites are listing non-mail servers with MX records with very high preference numbers (500). I have checked DNS at the server and it can list MX records all day. How do I make exchange pick the lowest preference?
 

Thanks!

This is actually a bug:

I know the article says its fixed in SP3 but it was re-introduced in SP4.  You will need to call Microsoft and tell them you need that hotfix.
