Hello All,
  I am new here but have been watching the list for a while.
I run a small WISP and we have just moved to a new carrier.
They have provided us with a cdir ipv4 block of /22 and a /23.
I am trying to get my reverse DNS working correctly but they will not point
their servers to my authoritative servers to tell these blocks where to 
their reverse. They told me to place forwards in my servers which I have 

FYI: I am running Bind 9 latest stable on my systems not sure what the 
carrier is running.

Here is what they show on their logs:

01-May-2012 09:07:30.868 transfer of '' from connected using
01-May-2012 09:07:30.971 transfer of '' from failed while receiving responses: NOTAUTH
01-May-2012 09:07:30.971 transfer of '' from end of transfer

Here is what My logs show:

02-May-2012 15:28:29.979 security: client query 
(cache) '' denied
02-May-2012 15:28:30.133 xfer-out: client bad zone 
transfer request: '': non-authoritative zone 

Here is what the named.conf zone looks like

zone "" {
         type master;
         file "/var/named/98.16.104.rev";
         allow-transfer {
I placed the forwarders to allow transfer on this zone but I think the 
zone name is no good.
