Question DNS zone and subdomain with Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress

Hello.
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 demo.joomladroduct.com. 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 ns1.joomladroduct.com and ns2.joomladroduct.com

It's obivious that DNS zone for mail website should be:
Code:
A 	demo 			191.192.193.194 	0 	
A  	mail 			191.192.193.194 	0 	
A  	joomlaproduct.com. 	191.192.193.194		0 	
A  	ns1 			191.192.193.194 	0 	
A  	ns2 			191.192.193.194 	0 	
A  	www 			191.192.193.194 	0 	
CNAME 	ftp.joomlaproduct.com. 	joomlaproduct.com. 	0 	
MX  	joomlaproduct.com. 	mail.joomlaproduct.com. 10 	
NS  	joomlaproduct.com. 	ns1.joomlaproduct.com. 	0 	
NS  	joomlaproduct.com. 	ns2.joomlaproduct.com. 	0 	
TXT	joomlaproduct.com. 	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

Code:
A 	demo.joomlaproduct.com. 	191.192.193.194 		0 	
A 	ns1				191.192.193.194 		0 	
A 	ns2				191.192.193.194 		0 	
CNAME 	ftp.demo.joomlaproduct.com. 	demo.joomlaproduct.com. 	0 	
MX 	demo.joomlaproduct.com. 	mail.demo.joomlaproduct.com. 	10 	
NS 	demo.joomlaproduct.com. 	ns.demo.joomlaproduct.com. 	0 	
NS 	ns1				ns1.demo.joomlaproduct.com. 	0 	
NS 	ns2				ns2.demo.joomlaproduct.com. 	0 	
TXT 	demo.joomlaproduct.com. 	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.
Thanks.
