Ok, then it got a wrong direction. Maybe a result too by your DNS
settings, where you have 2 MX entries with different priorities.

Taking you did not fault: then either you changed something in the DNS
and not all other in the world have current but cached and wrong DNS
information, or as I suspected before you see SPAMmers at work trying
the second MX host directly.

What still confuses me and makes me thinking you made something wrong is
what you wrote in your initial mail about this topic:

I have checked the zone information for each of the domains on Y and
they have MX records listed correctly -- mail should first go to Y, then
to X.
             MX   10 Y.ns1.com
             MX   15 X.ns2.com

If you have 2 different mail servers each for it's own set of domains,
then these DNS entries are wrong! and must lead to errors. It would
explain some errors you see in your maillog.
