You haven't provided any details of the types of errors you're getting, 
so I don't know how you expect anyone to help you.  And what do you mean 
by "both of my reverse lookups"?  That wording suggests that there are 
two specific reverse lookups that you always do, and they're both 
failing, but that doesn't help us understand the problem.

No one wants you to send them your config files directly, unless you 
hire them as a consultant.  Post some example "dig" commands (please, 
not "nslookup") and your config files to the group.
