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:	60	IN	A	60	IN	A	60	IN	A	60	IN	A	60	IN	A	60	IN	A	60	IN	A	60	IN	A

That is, if you want people to be able to go directly to "" 
as well as "" - if not, you only need the second block.
