No, it was a bug -- the system in question didn't actually have IPv6
addresses configured and it was failing to deliver mail to, claiming (IIRC) that the highest priority MX host was the
local host. 

I believe the diagnosis was that it interpreted the IPv6-only primary MX
host '' as if it were the Legacy IP address -- then claimed that it was a local address, and hence the mail
was undeliverable since was obviously not configured as a
local domain on that machine.
