Reverse Records on a leash?

No -- and it's not BIND, it's the DNS spec. Reverse entries are in the .in-addr.arpa domian, not your domain name.

Sorry Matus, I thought it was clear!

I put zeros just as an example.
it can be 220.127.116.11 where 1= (any ipv4 number) or
000.000.000.000. where 0 is (any ipv4 number).

Yes, I know that and this is my problem!
Why should we be subjected to the ISP for reverse when we already have a
static ip and are paying for the internet account, that by the way it is
not cheap or catered to small business?
Can we just CNAME whatever reverse they have there like;
000.000.000.000.someISP.net. IN CNAME mydomain.com.
Is that cause a technical issue according to BIND?
I thought I read somewhere you cannot CNAME under certain rules.
Is this one of them?
