Question abut reserv zone

You mean, don't slave 100.10.in-addr.arpa at all, and just maintain 10.in-addr.arpa locally?
The problem the original poster may run into, however, is that there may be other records in 100.10.in-addr.arpa that change dynamically, and those changes may not be reflected if only 10.in-addr.arpa is maintained locally.
To be sure, a "sync" script could be run periodically to keep 10.in-addr.arpa up to date. I've written such things in the past. But now we're talking about custom software, not something that can be accomplished using just BIND and its associated tools...
The other approach is to define zones for just the specific names that need to be "overridden" from the slave zone (Microsoft calls them "pinpoint zones"). That's a terrible solution, of course, since these zones are undelegated from their parent and thus special care must be taken to ensure that all resolvers which need to resolve the names in a specific way are configured appropriately (using master/slave/stub/forward). But at least it can be implemented using only BIND and its tools.

In this example since the address is the same I would just pick one name (the name the machine knows itself as) and use that name for the PTR record.
I would also use DNS UPDATE to update the reverse zones rather than editing master files. You can delegate update authority down to the <name,type> tuple level with DNS UPDATE. Then it doesn’t matter which machines are holding master files for the reverse zones.
