    basically, you'd just have to do a wildcard for the domain.
    i don't know for sure, but i think the wildcard should be after other definitions.

    ie -

    mail.domain.com. IN A 192.168.0.1
    ftp.domain.com. IN A 192.168.0.2
    *.domain.com. IN A 192.168.0.3 ; all other names

    Be wary that wild card dns entries can cause some unexpected behaviour with email.... And letting your email server accept mail on the wild card domains is a Bad Thing (TM) unless you really, really like spam.
