A reverse zone is identical to a forward zone.  It's just named 
something.in-addr.arpa.  Having said that, though, I don't think you 
need one.  The reverse DNS for those entries is being served by 
ns[12].dslextreme.com, not your server.

$ dig ns 49.218.66.in-addr.arpa

49.218.66.in-addr.arpa. 83892   IN      NS      ns1.dslextreme.com.
49.218.66.in-addr.arpa. 83892   IN      NS      ns2.dslextreme.com.

$ dig @ns1.dslextreme.com. any

In a world where the citizens of most developed nations have half their
incomes wrested from them by the state, how widely supported do you 
think the idea of "freedom" really is? - Russ Nelson
