In BIND, you could define www.subdomain.google.com or, if you prefer,
subdomain.google.com, as a "master" zone, within which the
www.subdomain.google.com name could resolve to an A record of your
choosing. For that matter, you could define google.com itself as a
master zone, but then you'd be stuck trying to match every change made
in the real google.com 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.
