Here is an example:

There is a CNAME Record "www.example.test.com CNAME ts.example.test2.com" in
the "example.test.com" zone, which my nameserver is not authoritive. My name
server is authoritive for "example.test2.com" zone.

I receive a A query for "www.example.test.com". I send this query to
external nameservers and discover the CNAME record target is in my zone. Is
this possible?

Best Regards,
