Checking HELO/EHLO names is recommended by the SPF RFC. Publishing records for these hostnames is an important part of the SPF protocol. HELO/EHLO is used when Mail from is <> even if a receiver does not do 100% HELO checking.

Publishing a HELO/EHLO rule involves creating an SPF record linked to the HELO/EHLO FQDN used by your mailserver (example: "mailserver.example.com"). Normally this should be an entirely separate SPF rule to the one which checks the from addresses in your domain which might be associated with say "example.com". A simple example of two policies might be:
Code:
example.com.             IN  TXT  "v=spf1 mx -all"
mailserver.example.com.  IN  TXT  "v=spf1 a -all"
