I have tried to setup a reverse zone as and perform
'update add' commands sending addresses like and and, in all cases, the update fails with NOTZONE.
 bind complains "update failed: update RR is outside zone (NOTZONE)".  Just
how "tight" does the arpa zone need to be?  what would be IN zone in this
case?  When I'm NOT using dynamic dns I have a zone file that is ORIGIN and just post manual entries that look like
" PTR" and reverse resolution
works fine.
