A DNS record type as per RFC 1035.

MG in this context is short for mail group. While this DNS record type never took off, its original intention was to create a method via DNS to manage mailing lists. Perhaps nowaday it could be used to show the email address of the owner of the hostname in question. The only argument for a MG record, obviously, is an email address.
