No problem. Just set up a secondary for the zone like you would with a
forward zone.

Name servers do not make any distinction between zones under (or, for that matter - which is used for IPv6
reverse lookups), and other zones. You could just as well put your
PTRs into your forward zone - though probably not many would know to
ask for them.
