I don't think so. DNS relies on a strict heirarchy in order to work. That
heirarchy relies on asking one server for any addresses you don't already
know (other DNS entries are strictly backups). Having such a "routing"
feature would compromise the heirarchy, and probably make it almost
unmanageable. I may be wrong, but I don't remember anything like that when
I was managing a DNS server a while ago...
