Weird DNS question

I'm having an "issue" with the friendly neighbourghood helpdesk.
1. We own a domain bar.ca
2. The webmaster of the site has asked to create a CNAME for this domain:
foo.bar.ca CNAME server.domain.ws
(yes, that's .ws -- Western Samoa)
3. The local admins are saying they can't do this without locally
defining an entry for server.domain.ws and that they can't make an
entry for an "oddball" TLD such as .ws
I *hate* "you can't get there from here" answers.
If the folks at <domain.ws> have properly configured *their* DNS for
host <server>, is it not enough for our CNAME (which is just an alias)
to just point to it without needing to recreate it?
Is there other voodoo that I'm missing here?
Any help is appreciated.
