Thanks to the following people who responded:

I had to configure the hosts line of /etc/nsswitch.conf to
query dns:

hosts: nis dns [NOTFOUND=return] files
                ^^^ add dns to this line

To test MX resolution:

/usr/lib/sendmail -bt
ADDRESS TEST MODE (ruleset 3 NOT automatically invoked)
Enter <ruleset> <address>
> /mx

My thanks to Ian who pointed me in the right direction
on both counts.

As always, this group is a real lifesaver.
