I set up this record on our hosting companies dns server and when
running the Exchange test connectivity tool it fails to find it. I
had the hosting company do some tests of there own and here is the
log they came back with.The test was performed on a non-caching
external nameserver, and it appears to work fine. The answer he gave
to me is in quotes "Is it possible the server or software you're
using to test just hasn't pulled in the updated record yet?" Any help
is appreciated.

[jim@xxxxxxxxx ~]$ nslookup
> set type=srv
Server: xxx.50.226.5
Address: xxx.50.226.5#53

Non-authoritative answer: service = 0 0 443

Authoritative answers can be found from: nameserver = nameserver =
