Proper response of reverse lookup private IPs

My main DNS is hosted by my provider, PSINet.
I have a BIND server setup for strictly caching (10.10.10.6).
Currently private IPs are not listed in the DNS.
I typed in this command at a computer that is using 10.10.10.6 for its DNS
dig 188.8.131.52.in-addr.arpa PTR
I get the response (after some time goes by) of
; <<>> DiG 8.2 <<>> 184.108.40.206.in-addr.arpa PTR
;; res options: init recurs defnam dnsrch
;; res_nsend to server default -- 10.10.10.6: Connection timed out
Is that normal and if so, should it be quicker than 15+ seconds?
