"If a CNAME RR is present at a node, no other data should be
 present; this ensures that the data for a canonical name and its aliases
 cannot be different.  This rule also insures that a cached CNAME can be
 used without checking with an authoritative server for other RR types."

RFC1034, section 3.6.2. What you are trying to do is illegal, and has
been so as long as DNS has existed.
