Unlike others in this thread have said, "SPF" is very well a valid RR 
type.  Your problem is that you forgot to enclose the RR contents in 
double quotes.  (The same applies to the database backends, BTW!  You 
actually have to store the double quotes in the database field!)

One thing about the "SPF" RR type, though:  Although the SPF spec prefers 
it over the legacy "TXT" type, some older implementations query only for 
TXT RRs.  I recommend having both "SPF"-type and "TXT"-type RRs with 
identical content.
