The experimental SRV record can be used for this, but since almost no
browsers use it, the practical answer is that DNS can't do this. You can
do it with a redirect: the DNS entry can point to a server that listens on
port 80, and that server can be configured to send an HTTP Redirect to the
real hostname and port.
