Consumer ISPs generally don't offer customer reverse DNS delegation.

This is a fault of the ISP. They *should* have DNS entries for all their
customers' addresses (typically they point to names like
host123-456.dialup.company.net), but Ameritech apparently doesn't. There's
nothing you can do, this is something they should fix, so you should report
the problem to their Customer Support Department.
