Hi guys,

I've been using NSD for about a year now and I love it. But I've been facing something strange for a while now and thought I should share.

I have a mailman server hosting around 40 mailing lists using different domain names. The thing is, I'd like to use an A record for the primary host name and use CNAME records for the other domains. Lets say my server was lists.domain.tld, and I want to have another host name lists.domain2.tld. Having

lists.domain2.tld.      3600    IN CNAME       lists.domain.tld.

Will generate the following error:

CNAME and other data at the same name

I've googled for this error but to no avail. any ideas? BTW both domain.tld and domain2.tld are hosted on my server.
