I only know this for our region, which is operated by RIPE. Maybe ARIN or any 
other RIR offers the same possibility.
Here you can do it by allocating this particular /26 to a customers net in the 
RIPE-DB. If allocated you can set the corresponding rdns-servers at RIPE.
My personal point of view for this is that I wouldn't let the customer manage 
his own rdns. I also never saw a provider which allows this to his customers. 
Sure, there will be some out in the world but I never saw it in any situation 
concerning me or my job.
To explain why I wouldn't allow it: rdns is (in my personal opinion!) a very 
authortative thing. IMHO it's the only thing you can at least trust a little 
bit. Due to the fact that rdns is quite statical, changes are not needed very 
often and could be done by these persons which operate the zone for this
