FWIW, I've been hitting this problem a lot. I'm glad someone raised it.
I hit it because of RFC 6555 - Happy Eyeballs.
My personal preference is for dnsmasq to realize that since it has an
A or AAAA or anything else, it isn't legal to return a CNAME and thus,
if it gets a CNAME from a recursive, it should drop it.
I'd be willing to look into writing a patch for this if there was an
indication that this was likely to be accepted.
