BIND 9 question

I am running RedHat Enterprise ES and using their dns config tool.

Basically I need to figure out if I need to create a separate zone for
each used subnet of our class b or if I can use one zone for all.  When
creating the reverse master zone the tool asks the ip address for the
zone.  It expects a class c address.

What do you mean by "it asks for"?  BIND doesn't ask you
anything, you configure everything manually in the named.conf file.
