Question DNS zone and subdomain with Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress

I've read Manual and overview related topics at forum and I can't understans one minor thing which make major problem.

Lets say that I have Joomla installed at Website and another Joomla at subdomain: www.joomlaproduct,com and Both are created as website. Below I mean in subdomain the address which looks like subdomain just.

At domain registrant I have personal name server records like and

It's obivious that DNS zone for mail website should be:
A 	demo 	0 	
A  	mail 	0 	
A		0 	
A  	ns1 	0 	
A  	ns2 	0 	
A  	www 	0 	
CNAME 	0 	
MX 10 	
NS 	0 	
NS 	0 	
TXT 	v=spf1 +a +mx -all 	0
but what should be at Subdomain DNS zone? I guessed the same, but after reading forum I'm confused with next settings as idea

A 		0 	
A 	ns1 		0 	
A 	ns2 		0 	
CNAME 	0 	
MX 	10 	
NS 	0 	
NS 	ns1 	0 	
NS 	ns2 	0 	
TXT 	v=spf1 +a +mx -all		0
but in fact I don't need MX, TXT records for subdomain, but CNAME ftp must be because there separate FTP user. Though it's not necessary because connection could be established by IP

Of cause I mean in subdomain separate website which just looks like subdomain.

Please, help me to find the truth.
