Ability to switch between 'DNAME' and 'FULL' clones #169
Currently fmDNS creates a zone with a DNAME record for each clone of a domain. This is not always desirable, because for example you're not able to receive email on those clones (CNAME/DNAME in MX is NO!).
The functionality I'm looking for is to be able to set a global mode to (dis)allow the use of DNAME for cloning. And furthermore the ability to override this behaviour on a per clone basis.
I think a lot of the core functionality (FULL/DNAME output) is already in place, since the code already switches to FULL-output once you add a MX record to the clone...

Automatic checking would be a nice feature, but would result in almost never using DNAME. In most situations you (read I) want to receive email on the main TLD and the county TLDs the company is active in (or only home country TLD). So all other country TLDs which are only used for redirection to the main TLD would be perfectly fine as a DNAME.
Here is an (really old) piece on another reason not to use DNAME:
