I think you might want to use DNAME instead of CNAME?

http://www.rfc-archive.org/getrfc.php?rfc=2672

5.1.  Organizational Renaming

    If an organization with domain name FROBOZZ.EXAMPLE became part of an
    organization with domain name ACME.EXAMPLE, it might ease transition
    by placing information such as this in its old zone.

        frobozz.example.  DNAME    frobozz-division.acme.example.
