Where in the output of dig domain name?

All kind time of day.
Please explain where in the output of dig login.payoneer.com +short domain names appear. Never before had not seen it. Always saw there's only IP. Can't even imagine at what phrase to Google.


Specify in a direction or give a link plz.

In fact, the server response looks like this:
 opcode = QUERY, id = 2, rcode = NOERROR
 header flags: response, want recursion, recursion avail.
 questions = 1, answers = 2, authority records = 0, additional = 0

 login-payoneer-com.payoneerx.prod2.reblaze.com, type = A, class = IN
 -> login-payoneer-com.payoneerx.prod2.reblaze.com
 type = CNAME, class = IN, dlen = 23
 canonical name = cs1415.adn.rhocdn.net
 ttl = 600 (10 mins)
 -> cs1415.adn.rhocdn.net
 type = A, class = IN, dlen = 4
 internet address =
 ttl = 3600 (1 hour)

That is the name login-payoneer-com.payoneerx.prod2.reblaze.com no A records, but CNAME is cs1415.adn.rhocdn.net. Since both zones are registered on a single server, it immediately adds the answer with A recording for cs1415.adn.rhocdn.net that is dig mail.google.com. +short will return a string with the name and address.
Understood. Thank You. - christian commented on April 7th 20 at 10:59

Because dig login.payoneer.com gives:
;login.payoneer.com. IN A

login.payoneer.com. 57 IN CNAME login-payoneer-com.payoneerx.prod2.reblaze.com.
login-payoneer-com.payoneerx.prod2.reblaze.com. 597 IN CNAME cs1415.adn.rhocdn.net.
cs1415.adn.rhocdn.net. 3599 IN A

As you can see from login.payoneer.com no record of A (i.e. direct IP address), but there is a link to a CNAMEthat points to login-payoneer-com.payoneerx.prod2.reblaze.comwhich is also not Abut there is a link CNAME already cs1415.adn.rhocdn.net, which finally is the record A with the address IMHO therefore, the whole logical chain and shows...
Last thought about the CNAME record. Thank you for pointing me to it. Now everything fell into place. - christian commented on April 7th 20 at 11:01
