Yes, you dont need to host their DNS for you to host their email. The Zone MX record must point at 
your mailserver though in order for mail to be sent to it and for them to be able to use their to reference the mailserver.
All you have to do is tell your mailserver that it accepts mail for that domain and the list of 
users which exist in that domain for it to deliver mail to
