    Its the server priority the lower the number the higher the priority, only equal weight servers are searched in a random fashion. The numbers can be anything people like, 5 is a common number to use as it allows insertion of a higher weight server without waiting for the existing server's record to timeout. Email MX records have weights too, however its common to put final delivery points down as MX 0.

    I know this is an old thread, but I've just installed Simple DNS from JH Soft - wow, this makes DNS easier than ever if you need to run one yourself. Forget Microsoft's. Ha!

    So long as you realise that the 'close simple DNS' in the UI actually terminates the service
