Apparently the nss doesn't support CNAMEs. The Windows NSP doesn't
support them either. I just filed the following bug reports, but I
think the changes need to happen in the core, so one fix should
handle all platforms.
<rdar://problem/4405068> nss_mdns should handle CNAME records
<rdar://problem/4405071> mdnsNSP should handle CNAME records
