This line is invalid. A CNAME record must always live alone on a name, while yours has brothers of type NS and SOA. As the SOA is required, the basic rule is that a domain itself cannot be a CNAME.

They may be doing what you were expecting/hoping, but when you put CNAME and other in a database together, there is no "correctly". This domain is broken on both of your platforms until you remove the streaming.com CNAME.
