Looking at "nslint" output on my machine, the nslint seems to have many
bugs and it may be questionable if there's point in using it.
However, I'll try to look.

Most of them are not errors from DNS point of view. Some are errors from
other reasons.

Define that name or remove that PTR.

Bogus warning.
