The problem isn't the amount of CNAMEs, the problem is Microsoft's 
broken nameserver implementation.

Compare 'dig +trace a' with 'dig +trace aaaa'.
Basic DNS troubleshooting.

If you ping at most 300 seconds before you ping6 the latter will 
succeed, if you start from an empty cache and ping6 first, it will 
fail to resolve until you ping.
