Where are you getting this from?  When I look up, the 
name doesn't exist.  And resolves to a different address.

The name reported by ping comes from a reverse DNS lookup of the 
address.  So you need to change the PTR record to point to

However, since PTR records are required to point to primary names, not 
aliases, you would also have to change from a CNAME to an 
A record.
