A zone is a zone. The DNS doesn't know about forward and
reverse zones. The DNS is a big distributed, replicated,
heirachical database. It's the users of the DNS that have
decided to call some zones forward and some zones reverse.
There is nothing special about zones ending in IN-ADDR.ARPA
or IP6.ARPA as far as the DNS is concerned.
