As long as they are reliable, why not? But it can be nice to have a Plan B.

On the positive side, by stopping people from using port 25 they are making it harder for spammers to use their mail servers, which in turn reduces the liklihood of their IP numbers being blacklisted.

And your normal mail servers might also support SMTP on ports other than 25, which would provide you with a backup.
