No.  DNS distribution is by zone, i.e. the hierarchy of *names*.  
There's no distribution based on record types -- all the records 
associated with a particular name come from the same servers.

If your DNS provider doesn't do what you want, get a different one.  
There's no reason why you have to have your DNS managed by your web 
hosting provider.
