Doesn't matter.  DNS servers and resolvers don't care about those
either.  DNS delegation is done using NS records.  At no point does a
DNS client look at the ip address associated with a record, try and work
out its purpose from the subnet mask and then make a new decision about
who to query as a result.  If the records aren't pointing where you
expect, somebody made a mess.


Hummingbirds are the only birds that can fly backwards, apart from
ostriches if you punch them hard enough.
