bind / named how to make a wildcard record and retain defined A records

It is almost as intuitive as we would like it is just a *.

So literally:

* IN A 127.0.0.1

 

Complete working bind zonefile below:

$TTL    86400

@    IN    SOA    ns.rtt.ca. ns2.rtt.ca. (
            1247605715; Serial
            10800    ; Refresh
            3600    ; Retry
            604800    ; Expire
            10800 )    ; Minimum

*        IN CNAME rtt.ca.

rtt.ca.         IN A 191.15.11.61
forum            IN CNAME rtt.ca.
forums            IN CNAME rtt.ca.
rtt.ca.        IN NS ns1.rtt.com.
rtt.ca.        IN NS ns2.rtt.com.
webmail.rtt.ca.         IN A     191.15.11.55
mail.rtt.ca.         IN A     191.15.11.55
ftp.rtt.ca.         IN CNAME     rtt.ca.
www.rtt.ca.         IN CNAME     rtt.ca.
rtt.ca.         IN MX    10 mail.rtt.ca.
