MX records are part of the the DNS Zone. If the Solaris server in question is running BIND, then look in the database file for the zone, as specified in /etc/named.conf (standard location, may be elsewhere on you specific system).

Depends exactly what you mean by "find".

To view the MX records for a domain, simply do

host -t mx example.com
