$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA www.iornwill.net. root.iornwill.net (
3 ; serial
28800 ; refresh
7200 ; retry
604800 ; expire
86400 ; ttl
)

take off the www in www.ironwill.net


www is a host, the domain name itself is ironwill.net.

if you leave it on, you'll get stuff like...

ftp.www.ironwill.net

and

www.www.ironwill.net

also, you may wanna make a lot of those CNAME's because they all have the same IP, but that might not matter. It could come in handy or hurt depending on how your network grows. The best way to test it all out is to use the dig command
