I suggest "alias" / "aliases" to mean DNs that broadly "do the same thing"
as
1. It's the term used in draft-aliasing-requirements
2. It's not used (as far as I know) by any existing proposed solution and
   so is not specific
3. As far as I know, it is not an existing term of art in DNS, Unicode, or
   ICANNalia
