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.
