Not necessarily. It depends on your network setup.

An MX record *would* be necessary if you want your incoming email to be 
routed through another server (or firewall) before going to your RT 
system. For example, in my setup, I have a centralized email gateway, so 
I have MX records for my RT server that point to that central server, 
and then the central server is configured to send RT-email to the RT server.
