I have a domain with a wildcard subdomain entry pointed at IP-A:

domain-a.com   -> xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
*.domain-a.com -> xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Can I create another CNAME pointing a spcified subdomain at a different IP. Or, rather, if I create such an entry, will it resolve to the 2nd IP?:

domain-a.com       -> xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
*.domain-a.com     -> xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
thing.domain-a.com -> yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy

Will that work? Does it even make sense?


Yes. See RFC 1034, section 4.3.3 for more technical information.
