Classless PTR query issue

I'm setting up a new zone, similar to the many I've created successfully on other ISPs to answer with PTR records for a /26 the ISP has sub-delegated to my dns servers and it continues to fail:

May  7 08:18:31 dns1 named[25328]: client view external: query (cache) '' denied

My named.conf is setup as
zone "" {
        type master;
        file "/var/named/";

zone record is:
$TTL 14400  86400   IN      SOA      (
                                                2013050702 ;Serial Number
                                                86400 ;refresh
                                                7200 ;retry
                                                1209600 ;expire
                                                86400 ;minimum
        )  86400   IN      NS  86400   IN      NS
90      14400   IN      PTR

Mind you this is a cpanel server and this is the first time I've tried setting up reverse dns to be setup by a cpanel server, but I'm not sure this is relevant.  It creates two views, internal and external. This is getting serviced out of the external view, which really is just setup to answer any question for which it has an answer.  So i _really_ don't think it's relevant but for the sake of troubleshooting I thought I might disclose that.

Anyone have any ideas?  Thanks in advance.
