I'm using BIND9, and I've got two domains, one of which I would like to completely alias to the other. For the sake of agrument, we'll call them domain.com, and domain.be. I've got multiple "A" records in the domain.com zone, and only one record in the domain.be zone, a DNAME pointing to domain.com.
IN A 188.8.131.52
blah1 IN A 184.108.40.206
blah2 IN A 220.127.116.11
blah3 IN A 18.104.22.168
IN DNAME domain.com.
This all works fine, I get responses when looking up blah1/2/3.domain.com, and blah1/2/3.domain.be. HOWEVER, I do NOT get a response when looking up domain.be (i.e., without a hostname, just the domain). Should this DNAME not alias the root record (RR) to domain.com as well? If not, why? And if it IS supposed to, any clue why it's not?
Also, if this is a normal occurrence, is there any way to alternatively point domain.be to domain.com, while keeping the DNAME in order to keep the dynamic aliasing?
