For two excellent reasons:

1. I didn't know they existed.
2. Now that I know they exist - I don't know how to use them.

I've enabled DNAME processing - now I need to understand how to setup 
the zone. Do replace the *entire* zone with just a DNAME record? Or do I 
need to retain any of the SOA, NS, MX records?
