    Confused :(

    Do your customer want:

www.xyz.com pointing to the same IP as www.abcd.com

    without having to manage xyz.com?

------

With bind:

    zonefile xyz.com

    $ORIGIN     xyz.com.
    <yadiyada TTL SOA>

    $INCLUDE    domains/abcd.com.all

     zonefile abcd.com

    $ORIGIN     abcd.com.
    <yadiyada TTL SOA>

    $INCLUDE    domains/abcd.com.all

    Just make sure nothing is the .all has the .abcd.com. (dots are
important).

Without bind:

    Good luck.
