Best practice for host records when devices have mutliple IPs?

What is best practice, or typically done when you have a device in Infoblox that has multiple interfaces with IP addresses (routers, firewalls, etc)? I know I can put everything in a single host record, but this returns the DNS record for each address attached to the host record. I would prefer that the DNS records only be associated with the management interface of the device, but still be able to see which device the other IPs are associated with in Infoblox. Should I create one host record that is enabled in DNS for the management interface, and then another host record that is not enabled in DNS for all the interfaces so I can identify which IPs the device is using?

That looks like the solution I was looking for! Unfortunately we are still running 8.2 and it appears Super Host were added for 8.3. I think I will start creating host records and then consolidate them when we upgrade. Thank you for the response!
