[Pdns-users] geo backend to use a CNAME and A record for the same domain

We would like to experiment with a dynamic site accelerator, but only for
visitors from Australia.

If resolver IP comes from AU:

www.mydomain.com CNAME www.mydomain.com.dsaprovider.com


www.mydomain.com A

It seems PowerDNS does not allow using a CNAME record and A record for the
same domain.

What is reason for this limitation?

Is there an alternative way to use the above configuration?

Thank you
