I just set this up for asheesh.org to use rose.makesad.us as its Jabber 
server.  Here's the lines in the zone:

_xmpp-server._tcp.asheesh.org. 86400 IN SRV 5 0 5269 rose.makesad.us.
_xmpp-client._tcp.asheesh.org. 86400 IN SRV 5 0 5222 rose.makesad.us.
_jabber._tcp.asheesh.org. 86400 IN SRV 5 0 5269 rose.makesad.us.

Those went in the zone for asheesh.org.  Let me know if this helps or I 
can provide more help!
