[Pdns-users] in.addr-arpa delegation

While RFC 2317 covers classless delegation for subnets smaller than a
/24 it does not cover delegation for subnets equal to or larger than a
/24. If I have a /20 assigned from ARIN that points to my nameservers
- how do I delegate a /24 to my customer's nameservers using powerdns
without using the classless delegation approach?

i.e. if the subnet is I would like the customer's name
servers to see the request as and not

I know this is possible with an ARIN SWIP of the IP space - I am
trying to avoid doing this with SWIPs.
