No MX or A records for domain.com

I have a domain that is having problems receiving email from yahoo/att.net only.  The error the yahoo people get is "No MX or A records for domain.com".  I am told that this is a sporatic error - some emails make it through, some don't.  The DNS records all look fine to me and I've verified through mxtoolbox.com.  I have noticed that at times, dnsgoodies.com shows no records for this domain.  I think this might be an indication of the problem - what would cause this?

The domain that is having the problem is a single sbs 2008 server running exchange.

Thanks,
Pete

the mx records have not changed within the past month.  No we do not use an online spam blocker.

Do you host your own external DNS records?

no, they are hosted by an outside provider.  I was thinking of changing companies it is hosted by a local web-hosting provider.

When i first wrote the OP, dnsgoodies showed no records.  Now, dnsgoodies shows records for the domain.  I am sure that its only a matter of time before it again cannot find any records.
