My host has various CNAME target server



Is a good thing configure the same www.mysite.com cname with al these targets? Something like

CNAME          | TTL   |Target
www.mysite.com | 1440  |server1.hostinger.net
www.mysite.com | 1440  |server2.hostinger.net
www.mysite.com | 1440  |server3.hostinger.net
www.mysite.com | 1440  |server4.hostinger.net

or I must use only a single target?

    Does your site exist on all of these servers? If so, then Yes you can do this. If not, then No. You would have to reference only the server your site sites on.

According to the standards you can have multiple DNS records for the same host name as long as they point to different endpoints. This is the same for A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, etc. As long as your site exists on all the servers you are pointing to then you can configure CNAME records for each and every hostinger.net server.
