    Here's the problem,
    if a site visitor types in a subdomain
    that doesn't exist shouldn't the server
    serve the domain anyway. As opposed to the servers
    primary domain.

    Example
    http://duh.client.com
    should go to http://www.client.com
    assuming the 'duh' subdomain is not real.
    Instead http://duh.client.com goes to
    http://www.me_the_webhost_with_wierd_DNS.com
    because that is the default domain assigned to the IP.

    What about this?:

    * 14400 IN CNAME client.com.
