Format of the IPv6 reversed zone

I'm new to IPv6 configuring in BIND. I need help. The forward zone is simple enough with AAAA record, but the reversed zone is a bit confusing to me.

For example, I want to add a hostname of<> to 2001:1930:c00::2. This IPv6 address is /48.

How can I add this IPv6 address in a reversed format?

$ORIGIN IN SOA xxxx.xxxx.xxxx

@ NS

What should I put for the PTR???

Is the reversed for IPv6 in the file or file???
