I don't think you can block propagation like you are wanting to.

Okay ...

Here's what I would do.

Configure so that it resolves to a known value for the 
world to see a page that says things are configured incorrectly.

Configure internally so that it resolves to a different 
known value for people to see that says that things are configured 
correctly.  -  You can do this by adding an internal zone that uses Apex 
Overrides to make resolve to a different address.
