I get the same results every time I run it, but I do have a couple of
caching name servers between me and the Internet (I have one on my LAN which
if it doesn't have the entry looks to OpenDNS (http://www.opendns.com).
Also, the order they appear isn't as important as the number next to the
server name. The lower the number, the higher the priority the server is
(eg, "5 gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com" is the first server that should be
tried). It's possible that gsmtp163 is having issues and most people don't
get to it because it's cost is 50. Not sure why your server is trying to
send to it, though....

If you're not opposed to changing your DNS settings, you could try using
OpenDNS as your upstream provider.
