It's not redundant. The /24 block owner has its own 1.10.10.in-addr.arpa
zone which contains CNAMEs pointing to other zones.
The clients have those "other zones" which the owner should slave.

It's just recommended to give those zones names like
0/ so it's clear what the zone does.

Example is CNAME 1.0/ in the
reverze zone. This will cause the lookups go to 0/
maintained by the client.
