The point is, it *does* work with *that specific IP address*

$ dig @ +short -x

( is running pdns-recursor 4.1.9).  It works.

However, there are different ways to set up reverse DNS delegation for 
subnets smaller than /24.  Therefore, trying to copy this for your own 
zone probably won't work.

If you tell us the actual IP address block that you're trying to get 
reverse DNS working for, then we can determine through DNS queries how 
your ISP has configured the delegation - and thus tell you how to 
configure the zone.
