ok actually the real problem is when web server is not in the given zone
(but i just like to point to the problem in my original mail) like in
this case:
$ORIGIN example.com.
               CNAME          www
www            CNAME          virtual.webserver.com.
in this case both record should have to be CNAME and the only place
where any changes would have to made is in webserver.com zone.
