I setup a forward zone called, mydomain.com.  Is there a way to redirect 'example.mydomain.com' to an external URL, without using an IP address. I setup a PTR record but that doesn't seem to do the job.  thanks

Yes, you can make a CNAME record.  A CNAME makes an alias.  For example, tns.billfleury.com is a cname for my dynamically updated tns.dyndns-wiki.com ,  

See the Wikipedia article about DNS record types for more info:
