Thanks, I digged rfcs, and found THE misconfig scene in rfc1912:

2.4 CNAME records

   A CNAME record is not allowed to coexist with any other data.  In
   other words, if suzy.podunk.xx is an alias for sue.podunk.xx, you
   can't also have an MX record for, or an A record, or
   even a TXT record.  Especially do not try to combine CNAMEs and NS
