You want the "do what I mean not what I say instuction".
If someone want's to add code to check of for CNAME to
non-existant checks it should be easy. Remember however
that CNAME to non-existant is normal for some zones.
RFC 2317 "parent" zones have lots of such CNAMEs.
The "host" example above would normally result in a CNAME
to name within the zone itself.
