Any Way To Make Root A Record Point to CNAME?

Normally if you want and to point to the same
web site, you would have A records that might look like this in the zone

    @    A
    www    A

Unfortunately our web site is done through a Yahoo CNAME, so our www record

    www    CNAME

If I try to set the root to the same I get major failures during zone
transfers.   The failed line is:

    @    CNAME

I assume I have a syntax error here.     Is there any way to get the root
domain to use a CNAME instead of an A record?
