I know maybe this is not related to DNS question, so please excuse me
if it's not that suitable.
I have two server IPs, the A records for them are:
mail.dnsbed.com. 300 IN A 188.8.131.52
mail.dnsbed.com. 300 IN A 184.108.40.206
The corresponding PTR records are:
220.127.116.11.in-addr.arpa. 36466 IN PTR dnsbed.com.
18.104.22.168.in-addr.arpa. 36453 IN PTR dnsbed.com.
But this setting can't make email sending successful.
The Postfix system says:
postfix/smtp: A65713180D9: to=<***@freenet.de>,
delays=0.29/0.02/0.76/0.16, dsn=5.0.0, status=bounced (host

record for 126.96.36.199 (see RFC 1912 2.1) (in reply to RCPT TO
Is there any RFC item said the A and PTR records must be consistent?
And why they must?
