[Pdns-users] Wrong A-Record is retuned for CNAME that can not be resolved to A

Thanks for the explanation!
This setup is part of a configuration wizard by Flowfact (realestate
The CNAME is one of the settings that have to be set according to
their tool - it also validates successfully.
The problem is, their tool raises an "unknown error" and the helpdesk tells
me, they don't support this part of their software (wtf?).
I thought this might be something obvious but as Thomas pointed out, a
CNAME to TXT should be fine (which I never tried or thought would work).
My assumption that CNAME must return an IP address simply was wrong.
This makes me more confident, my side is actually working correctly and
there is something broken at Flowfact.
