I think its a web configuration issue. All that DNS can do is assign the
hosts to an IP address. It won't be able to determing port addressing or
anything like that.

Are they all on the same domain name, or separate domain names?
If all on the same domain name, then you just need to create one zone file
(for the domain name), with the following host records:
foo.com. IN A 10.0.0.1
host1 IN CNAME foo.com.
host2 IN CNAME foo.com.
host3 IN CNAME foo.com.
That will map host1.foo.com to point to 10.0.0.1, host2.foo.com to
If they are all separate domain names, then create a zone file for each
one and have an A record pointing to the IP address.
Then configure your web server (if Apache 1.3.3+) like such for each
