You could if your alias names were delegated properly, i.e. NS records
pointing to the authoritative nameservers on port 53.

Are you sure it's that way round? It's a bit odd putting authoritative
on 5300 - nobody in the world will be able to communicate with it on
that port, because you can't point an NS record to port 5300. And on
your recursor, you'd have to explicitly forward every one of your local
domains to port 5300 on the auth.
