You need to create a PTR zone, for example 0.168.192.in-addr.arpa.  Then 
have the NS & PTR records in that zone.  This is how PowerDNS works - 
Poweradmin just provides a management tool.

2.1.6 is supposed to be able to automatically add PTR records when new A 
records are created - I haven't tried that yet.
