Convert Alias Records into DNS Round Robin?

Hi everyone.


I have a host record for a webserver, that has 14 aliases attached to it. I've stood up a second webserver, and would like to have just a dumb DNS round robin spread the traffic between the two using the names defined in the Aliases.


Is it possible to somehow convert all these Aliases to a record type that is more suitable for DNS round robin? I'm guessing I would need to do it quickly, since I'd like to avoid having these names not resolve while doing this work.I suppose I could create 14 separate Host records, and assign both IP addresses to each, but I wasn't sure if this is the best/elegant way to do it.


Any assistance to set me on the right track would be highly appreciated!
