If I'm using a separate service for DNS like DynDNS for my domain, and my web server and mail server are two different physical servers...
If my web server goes down, I'd still get my mail right?
If that's the case, what are some good DNS hosts out there that people recommend? I'm looking at DynDNS right now, but they have a limit of 70 records per domain.

My understanding is that as long as ONE of your name servers is up, and your MX records point to a server different from your website server, then the mail will be delivered to the other server even if your website is down.
That works if you use third party DNS service or a DNS cluster that you control.
