PTR records can point to any name regardless of the types at that
name or even if it exist. PTR records are described as being
similar to CNAME records but are not followed RFC103?. CNAME
records can (though it is discouraged) point to CNAME records.

From a operational point of view DNAME does not change any
requirement to point to a canonical name. A name under a DNAME
is not canonical.
