Forward all subdomains

I guess the part that I forgot to mention is that BBB.com is not under
my control. And I will need to be able to reserve some sub-domains for
my own control. Is this something that is not possible to setup? It
seems relatively simple to implement this kind of functionality in the
context of a DNS I am surprised that it doesn't already exist.
Thanks for the response.

CCC.com. DNAME BBB.com.
Note admin.CCC.com cannot be directly mapped to www.BBB.com with
the above DNAME and no subdomains of a node containing a DNAME
allowed. You will need to do the mapping under BBB.com.
admin.BBB.com. CNAME www.BBB.com.
