Why are you defining ns.jellico.net twice in the same zonefile?

Well, although you have a zone for 185.191.207.in-addr.arpa configured,
it seems its authoritive nameservers are ns1.butler.net and
ns2.butler.net. Is that you? Or perhaps are they slaving that zone from
your nameserver? If not, then it's probably Butler Networks which needs
to delegate the zone to you, or make the changes to the reverse zone on
their nameservers.
