ouch - this is all quite confusing to me.

if you have allocated a portion of space to a client, set it up as follows:

assumed:  you are responsible for
assumed:  your client runs their own DNS for
assumed:  your client is going to run reverse for the subnet

in the forward zone file for

somename	IN	A
someother	IN	A

160		IN	PTR
161		IN	PTR

in your IN-ADDR.ARPA file for the zone:


this allows you to refer all reverse lookups to the NS responsible for, and it also allows them to keep them updated.  i've run DNS like
this for years.
