Does anyone know how to set up a DNS pointer to a nested SharePoint Site? I am able to set a DNS pointer to the root site, but not to any subsites.

    Ultimate goal- create DNS entry Intranet, so, if user enters intranet it resolves to Http://SharePoint/sites/intranet.
    This is a a nested site. By default my intranet pointer goes to Http://SharePoint/Intranet/Pages. I have made entries in AAM, but they only let me get to the root of the web app.
