"[R]everse map"? Do you mean reverse DNS? Reverse DNS is done in the
standard way, just like you would (pretty much) on BIND. For example, if
reverse DNS for should point to 'server.example.com', it
would have the following information associated:

name                         type    value   PTR     server.example.com

Other fields would be set as appropriate.
