While running a check on my named configuration through, I
received an error message: your mail server has no reverse DNS (PTR) entries
(in the following file):
.....but it appears correct to me, and I do reference with
PTR? DO I need to add an MX record too?


$TTL 86400
@       IN      SOA (
                        2000102005 ; serial
                        7200 ; refresh
                        3600 ; retry
                        604800 ; expire
                        86400 ; ttk

        IN      NS  
        IN      NS
