Reverse DNS has to be delegated either on a /24 or via CNAMEs in the 
surrounding /24, you don't control your own reverse DNS if all you have is 
a single IP, the ISP/provider of that IP controls it.  To that end broadnet 
will have to add PTRs for you to your A records.  Note that reverse DNS is 
*TWO* parts, a PTR, and a corresponding A record.
