If you are trying to have a subdomain resolve to an IP address, you
could add the following to the db.foo.bar.com zone file (assuming that
you are authoritative for the zone):
db.foo.bar.com IN A 188.8.131.52

Subject: Re: How to override an A record
I'm not worried about resolution of further subdomains below
www.foo.bar.com. My problem is that I am worried about other A records
records of other types) in the foo.bar.com domain. For example, I want
override a single A record www.foo.bar.com but I still want the A
for say, www2.foo.bar.com to resolve through normal channels from the
authoritive DNS server.
