In BIND, you could define or, if you prefer,, as a "master" zone, within which the name could resolve to an A record of your 
choosing. For that matter, you could define itself as a 
master zone, but then you'd be stuck trying to match every change made 
in the real zone, and that seems like way too much work if 
all you care about is a particular subdomain.

Don't know whether, or how, this same functionality would be possible 
using Microsoft DNS...

P.S. There's no shortage of commas in the world. Feel free to use them 
as appropriate to make your text more readable.
