You were right on the money with the subject - you want to delegate.
Actually you want to change the delegation, which has to be done at
whomever owns the /16 the /20 is part of.

Contact either your upstream provider or ARIN directly. If it is ARIN
you need to talk to, I hear there is an IN-ADDR.ARPA form to be filled
out - though I have never been involved in that (I'm in Europe to
start with).
