The jacks generally used for handsets on fax machines are a smaller (fewer contact positions) version of the one that are used for the wall-mounted outlets.
Unless the Brother handset jack looks totally different than the one in which the fax machine is currently plugged at the wall, then the handset jack should look pretty much the same but smaller.
A friend or relative may have a retired corded phone that they haven't tossed out yet so check with them before poking around to look for a replacement as described below. 
If you are in the US, check the dollar stores and chain drugstores for corded telephones. Coming from China, they shouldn't cost more than $10 US and may have the exact same connector attaching the handset to the base of the phone. Check them if possible before hitting the cash-register since it is becoming more common to have the handsets on these cheap phones permanently wired to the base which, of course, makes them useless for your needs. Most stores though will let you return the item for a refund.
Checking a couple of stores, you may even find it possible to match the color of the fax machine with your substitute handset.

I need to replace the ADF Document Support piece on my Brother MFC-8220 fax machine. Do you know where I can purchase one?

I finally located a phone numbe for the Brother-USA Sales Dept. (888-615-9119). The part was $4 plus shipping and handling ($10 total). It took a bit of doing for them to identify the part and determine the part number. I had to fax them a machine parts diagram from the MFC-8220 manual. Go figure.

I would try sending to another source. If the document goes threw the machine and you get a confirmation report saying it was sent, then it was sent. The person on the other end may be having trouble with their machine as well.

Make sure the line from the wall is plugged into the port marked"line" and not "phone" If this does not solve it then it sounds like there is a loose solder joint on the connector inside the machine.
