apart from the fact that you can't define a CNAME RR at the zone apex
because it collides with the mandatory SOA and NS RRs (Roy mentioned it),
it is also not clear what the proper interpretation of the first CNAME
definition is.  As per RFC 1035, the <blank> "inherits" the last "stated
ownername" and that isn't influenced by the $ORIGIN statement.
