I fixed it myself. Thank you.

The key was to add a PTR record on the PowerDNS locally.

Windows checks the PTR record  on the local server itself instead of the authorative server.

I’m trying to add the server hostname to PowerDNS. This does not seem to work.

When I do an nslookup to the specific PowerDNS server I get back that the server hostname is Unknown.

Sorry, but this question has nothing to do with PowerDNS at all.

Firstly, nslookup is part of the bind suite of tools, and the behaviour is local to nslookup.  Secondly, you are using Windows, which has Microsoft's obsolete and forked version of bind/nslookup.

Try using the Linux version of nslookup and you'll see the difference:
# nslookup solit.nl ns1.globe.hosting
Server:        ns1.globe.hosting

Name:    solit.nl

The above example was run on Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS, which has the nslookup from bind 9.11.3

# which nslookup
# dpkg-query -S /usr/bin/nslookup
dnsutils: /usr/bin/nslookup
# dpkg-query -l dnsutils
