What you want is indeed not allowed, specifically this one line in the
zonefile:
@	IN CNAME bla.bla.bla
You could comment that one line and keep the other CNAMEs below the zone
apex.

If you really want NSD to ignore section 3.6.2, use the attached patch.
 I have not tested the patch, but in code it looks like it may do what
you want (return positive answers and otherwise the CNAME).

There is no support for this patch :-)

Best regards,
   Wouter
