Indeed you're right.  I did not expect the CNAME to be implemented
at the zone apex, because AFAIK that's illegal.  The zone apex ends
up with both CNAME and SOA records (and more):

  vwtelecom.eu. IN NSEC localhost.vwtelecom.eu. NS CNAME SOA MX RRSIG NSEC DNSKEY

Is that "kosher"?  Or are domains such as this misconfigured?
