I think you are getting the errors because you put a CNAME at the zone
apex (example.com). And no other data is allowed next to a CNAME, and
there is also a SOA record at the apex. This is why bind complains I
think. But where is your SOA record, I think that is confusing NSD from
giving a similar (CNAME not allowed with other data) error.

Yes good idea.
