I initially thought so - but per the manual, "The ALIAS record provides
a way to have CNAME-like behaviour on the zone apex."
So from the manual I inferred the purpose of ALIAS was to basically
clone a zone and was not to be used for individual host records. Is it
in fact good practice with PowerDNS to have multiple occurrences of
ALIAS within a zone to define multiple hostnames?
