Who is hosting your primary domain zone file? It should be as simple as establishing a secondary zone file for sub domain and write in appropriate records.

If your isp has set up a zone file for your sub domain or if your hosting your own DNS then create a tech forest for your subdomain on your FIM then you add MS365 Srv and Cname records provided by o365 and your records pointing to your FIM server and attempt to sync. Links to help.

thank you
we are not hosting any server for 365 at the moment, all in the MS cloud.
I mean the bellow link says about all the dns entries we need for 365. Is there anything else needs to be done as well?

all I want to achieve, similar as google apps.. when I do dns entries done all the request for 365 subdomain should go to MS cloud directly.. publish office 365 under our sub domain not  xxx.microsoftonline.com. hope it's make sense...

add the sub the man in office 365 as you would a regular domain then input the record needed to verify the sub domain in the zone file assigned to the sub domain
then add the records to the sub domain zone file provided by o365
