Answer

Virtual Domains are configured beneath a full Domain.

Therefore the DNS records should point to the IP address of the Full Domain.

If you are unsure which Domain the Virtual domain was created beneath this can be determined by selecting Domains>Edit in the GUI. The Base domain will be listed here.

A Typical DNS entry for the Full Domain would look like:

yourdomain.com          IN MX 10	mail.yourdomain.com
mail.yourdomain.com     IN A		1.2.3.4

The DNS records for the Virtual Domain would point to the same IP address:

virtualdomain.com          IN MX 10	mail.virtualdomain.com
mail.virtualdomain.com     IN A		1.2.3.4
