I had the same problem doing exactly the same thing with MX records.
It's not ideal, but the only way around it is to repeat the A definitions:
imap1.bar.net. 60 IN A 192.168.1.1
imap2.bar.net. 60 IN A 192.168.1.2
imap3.bar.net. 60 IN A 192.168.1.3
imap4.bar.net. 60 IN A 192.168.1.4
imap.bar.net. 60 IN A 192.168.1.1
imap.bar.net. 60 IN A 192.168.1.2
imap.bar.net. 60 IN A 192.168.1.3
imap.bar.net. 60 IN A 192.168.1.4
That is, if you want people to be able to go directly to "imap1.bar.net"
as well as "imap.bar.net" - if not, you only need the second block.
