Nope, you need an HTTP server for that, not a DNS server. The mentioned DNS providers bundle HTTP services in order to fulfil such an use case. 
Because it would be really simple, just return an HTTP 302 response, it might be possible to do it with the default httpd that comes with OpenBSD. If it's not, than you could install nginx or Apache and configure it for such response. 

Either way, it's not in the realm of a DNS daemon.
