I don't think that's true.

I think it may well choke the resolvers in many XMPP implementations,  
mind, but I think it ought to work according to the specifications. A  
CNAME merely states to restart the resolution using the new name.

Specifically, the requirement that a name with a CNAME record MUST  
NOT have any other records (aside from certain DNSSEC ones) would  
appear to support that.
