Yes, if they are handling your public domain name, you would have to have
them create an MX record for the subdomain. Just have them point it to the
current external mail server that's currently hosting your mail.

your ISP, whether they host your forward lookup zone or
not, may have to put a reverse lookup record (PTR) for you
(your IP).
If a program such as Sendmail does a reverse lookup on
your IP (upon receipt of your mail), and it doesn't match
your name, it will get rejected as possible SPAM.
