Clarification on CNAME

y resolver is returning multiple CNAMEs for same hostname. But I believe
CNAME should not return same hostname with multiple values.

Ex: Configured GEOIP records as follows: CNAME CNAME ---- Arizone configured CNAME ---- Virginia configured CNAME ---- Others configured

Queried “” from AZ,VA and OTHERS regions against my resolver.

My resolver is returning same hostname with mutliple CNAME's.

>From AZ i am getting: CNAME CNAME

>From VA i am getting: CNAME CNAME

Is this behavior is correct. Could you please clarify me.

Thanks & regards,
