Usually two mx records are used for redundancy and load balancing.  You can probably use either...or go to www.intodns.com and type the domain.  Then use whichever is lower (primary) on the list.  Meaning if you have two and one starts with 0 - domain.com and the other with 10 - domain.com
Then use the one with the lowest (0)

Hope that helps...
