Not if the students subdomain has different MX details to the main
domain, which appears to be the case here:

;; ANSWER SECTION:
wesleyseminary.edu. 43098 IN MX 10 mail1.no-ip.com.
wesleyseminary.edu. 43098 IN MX 15 mail2.no-ip.com.
wesleyseminary.edu. 43098 IN MX 5 mail.wesleyseminary.edu.

;; ANSWER SECTION:
students.wesleyseminary.edu. 1674 IN MX 5 students.wesleyseminary.edu.

Probably a good idea in any educational environment.
