Say I have this definition:

$TTL    86400

@       IN      SOA (
                        1132657947      ; Serial
                        10800   ; Refresh
                        3600    ; Retry
                        604800  ; Expire
                        86400 ) ; Minimum             IN NS             IN NS             IN NS          IN A             IN A

www                              IN CNAME
webmail                          IN CNAME   www
ftp                              IN CNAME   www
mail                             IN CNAME   www             IN MX  10

As there are many other parked domains, plus TLD variations of,
it would be useful to define their recs soley in terms of the above. In 
other words,
where appears in these slave domains I really want something 
and no IP addresses. The point is during server moves etc I would only 
need to update the
1 record, rather than all the individual ones as at present. Is this 
possible please?
