How to set up local email server dns for server only

domain is acppython.com

What is the proper dns record for email only domain.  Currently I have

Type         Name                       Value                                                              TTL
A             example.com            123.123.123.123                                              1 Hour
A             mail.example.com     123.123.123.123                                              1 Hour
MX         @                                mail.example.com (Priority: 10)                         1 Hour
MX         example.com              mail.example.com (Priority: 20)                         1 Hour
NS         @                                ns01.domaincontrol.com                                  1 Hour
NS         @                                ns02.domaincontrol.com                                  1 Hour
SOA      @                                Primary nameserver: ns01.domaincontrol.com. 1 Hour

 

on dns reports it says No A record for mail.example.com 

DNS Transcript - 1 f.gtld-servers.net 192.35.51.30 NON-AUTH 31 ms Received 2 Referrals , rcode=NO_ERROR acppython.com. 172800 IN NS ns01.domaincontrol.com,example.com. 172800 IN NS ns02.domaincontrol.com,

2 ns01.domaincontrol.com 97.74.100.1 AUTH 0 ms Received 1 Referrals , rcode=NO_ERROR example.com. 600 IN SOA mname=ns01.domaincontrol.com rname=dns.jomax.net serial=2019010322,

 

I don't need to resolve example.com to a website the domain is strictly for email. Any suggestions on how to clean up the dns is much appreciated.
