it's nearly always misleading and results in randomness on the receiving
server which name get logged and if A/PTR matches
normally you should always have:
* IP with *one* PTR
* the A-Record for the PTR matches
* smtp_helo_name of your MTA matches the same name
and if you have split DNS just make sure that "smtp_helo_name" matches
what the receiving server would get for a PTR lookup to your public IP
connecting to him - it's really easy to achieve
