SoftLayer_Dns_Domain_ResourceRecord_CnameType is a SoftLayer_Dns_Domain_ResourceRecord object whose type property is set to "cname" and defines a DNS CNAME record on a SoftLayer hosted domain. A CNAME record directs a host name to another host. For instance, if the CNAME record for "alias.example.org" points to the host "host.example.org" then the host property equals "alias" and the data property equals "host.example.org.".

DNS entries defined by CNAME should not be used as the data field for an MX record.
