There is such a record in the case of Jabber; it uses the SRV record type. For instance:

$ host -t SRV _xmpp-server._tcp.gmail.com
_xmpp-server._tcp.gmail.com SRV 20 0 5269 xmpp-server1.l.google.com
_xmpp-server._tcp.gmail.com SRV 20 0 5269 xmpp-server2.l.google.com
_xmpp-server._tcp.gmail.com SRV 20 0 5269 xmpp-server3.l.google.com
_xmpp-server._tcp.gmail.com SRV 20 0 5269 xmpp-server4.l.google.com
_xmpp-server._tcp.gmail.com SRV 5 0 5269 xmpp-server.l.google.com
$ host -t SRV _xmpp-client._tcp.gmail.com
_xmpp-client._tcp.gmail.com SRV 20 0 5222 talk2.l.google.com
_xmpp-client._tcp.gmail.com SRV 20 0 5222 talk3.l.google.com
_xmpp-client._tcp.gmail.com SRV 20 0 5222 talk4.l.google.com
_xmpp-client._tcp.gmail.com SRV 5 0 5222 talk.l.google.com
