Well if you want to go to such a complicated setup then yes
you need to add the extra wildcards. You also need to add
additional address records which you are missing for "ie"
The OP said that *everything* had to resolve to the one
address. Everything includes the nameserver. The only
thing that doesn't resolve is the root and I think one can
get by without that resolving to a address.
