DNS record update failed


I am trying to setup ns record for domain hosted on google without www name. But I keep geting this error in syslog:

Jan 25 10:31:07 mydns1 named[4421]: zone mydomain.com/IN: loading from master file master/mydomain.com failed: CNAME and other data

Zone file for domain is:
--------------------------
; zone file za mydomain.com
$TTL 1d ; 172800 secs default TTL for zone
@ IN SOA ns1.my.com. postmaster.my.com. (
2013012502 ; se = serial number
12h ; ref = refresh
15m ; ret = update retry
10d ; ex = expiry
3h ; min = minimum
)
$ORIGIN mydomain.com.
IN NS ns1.my.com.
IN NS ns2.my.com.
; IN MX 10 mail
www IN CNAME ghs.google.com.
mydomain.com. IN CNAME ghs.google.com.

---------------------------
Last record should enable domain be accessed as mydomain.com. But it throws an error. What am I doing wrong?

Hi,

This is how bind works (see 2.4 of RFC-1912)
You should add an A RR for the domain. Something like that (taken from one of my customers zone):
Code:
<snip>
                        IN      A               216.239.32.21
                        IN      A               216.239.34.21
                        IN      A               216.239.36.21
                        IN      A               216.239.38.21
www                 IN      CNAME      ghs.google.com.
You could also use:
Code:
 IN      CNAME      ghs.google.com.
(note the blank space at the beginning of the line), but strictly speaking it's not correct according to the above rfc

Regards
