The delegation (from 212.in-addr.arpa) looks OK:
dig @ns-pri.ripe.net. 108.123.212.in-addr.arpa. ns +norec
;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
108.123.212.in-addr.arpa. 172800 IN NS ns1.computec.de.
108.123.212.in-addr.arpa. 172800 IN NS ns1.sec-dns.de.

I doubt that. I would consult your firewall admin to see if there's
any config on it to intercept PTR queries. Also you could turn on
query-logging on your nameserver to see if it actually gets the PTR
queries for this zone.
