You did not 'terminate' the CNAME record. With BIND style zone files it is a
convenience feature that if there is not a terminating '.' the record will be
qualified with the current scope you're in.
As PowerDNS does not try to outguess you it just takes what you put in the
content column of your database for granted, hence the CNAME for hier.foo.bar.
actually returns 'hallo'.
Try putting 'hallo.foo.bar.' in the content column of that CNAME.
