Multiply A records for the same Ip adress
 
I have one A record in my dns pointing towards an Ip adress as it should. The thing is that I need to run one more A record in a different zone file pointing to the same IP for a grace period when changing names of webservice. So they should be work beside eachother for some time before switching over to the new one. Is that possible?

I know that if they would be in the same "zone" i would have done it with a CNAME, but now? I feels like it should work, so its maybe a stupid question?

Sure it's possible.
Suppose 2 zones and their 2 zone files. You should have
Code:

#zone1
...
zone1.com.  A 1.2.3.4
...

Code:

#zone2
...
zone2.com.  A 1.2.3.4
...
