I do not think it is valid to have several CNAMEs. I may be
wrong, but I've never seen it tried.
The classical way is to have
relay00.dev.domain.net IN A 10.0.0.1
relay01.dev.domain.net IN A 10.0.0.2
relay.dev.domain.net IN A 10.0.0.1
relay.dev.domain.net IN A 10.0.0.2
(and the corresponding
184.108.40.206.in-addr.arpa IN PTR relay00.dev.domain.net.
220.127.116.11.in-addr.arpa IN PTR relay01.dev.domain.net.
You will not have any problems with that.
