The DNS server shouldn't be requesting anything from your site. It's simply an address book which maps an entry like www.mydomain.com to an IP address.

From your other post, it sounds like the browser is making the request for https://mydomain.com, and then barfing when it gets a certificate for www.mydomain.com, since they might not be the same site.

Many certificate authorities will issue a certificate which is valid for both www.mydomain.com and mydomain.com, so it might be worth seeing if that's an option. Otherwise, you'll need a spare IP address and a second SSL cert to avoid this error. (You could probably get away with a free cert from StartSSL[^], since you're only securing a redirect to the real site.)
