That's all optional and entirely up to you. The record for can remain as an A, especially if you're reasonably
confident that your server will keep the same IP address for a while.
CNAMEs can get messy, so I usually try to avoid them when an A record will
do the job.

Actually, there are those that consider it mandatory that MXs point to A records.  QDNS won't even let you put in a C name for an MX these days.  (sorry, i'm not one of those RFC quotin' kind of guys, but that's probably where it stems from)
