Sub DomainPriorityAssigned To Server
@10mx.zoho.com
@20mx2.zoho.com
@50mx3.zoho.com

Note:

MX records change from one DC to another. To make sure you have the right MX records for your domain, we recommend you get that information from Zoho Mail Admin Console.

You have now added the MX Records successfully. You may have to wait for at least 6 to 24 hours for the changes to take effect in the DNS Servers. Once the MX reflects in the DNS servers, go to the Admin Console and click Verify MX Records. But, you will start receiving emails at your Zoho Account as soon as the MX gets reflected. 

You can also check if the correct MX details are reflected in Zoho's MX record checking tool.
