If the IP Address is being resolved correctly from BIND based on the DNS
setup, you will need to configure your HTTP server to listen for both
host names on the same IP by using the <Virtual Host> directive in
Apache or by using multiple host headers in IIS. This should correct the
issue of the URL not changing.
