[ldns-users] Drill does not handle CNAME properly?

Not sure if this is right or not.

When digging for a hostname, type A (or any type other than CNAME) that
is represented by a CNAME, I get:

; Bad data; RR for name and type not found or failed to verify, and
denial of existence failed.

If I dig directly for the CNAME, it validates, as it does if I dig
directly for the target host record.

Is this correct?
