Why would you delegate it to a third party name server?  GoDaddy have explicitly told me that they do not  and will not host the rDNS zone.  They say it’s the IP issuers responsibility to hold the in-addr.arpa zones.  With every other domain we have we have never had a problem like this.  Is it not possible for you to be primary SOA for in-addr.arpa zones for IP addresses which you issue?

Hi Adam,

AFRINIC has delegated the control of the 249.175.196.in-addr.arpa zone to ns53.domaincontrol.com<http://ns53.domaincontrol.com>. The only information in our own “parent zone” is who manages 249.175.196.in-addr.arpa

> dig NS @ns3.afrinic.net 249.175.196.in-addr.arpa

; <<>> DiG 9.10.6 <<>> NS @ns3.afrinic.net 249.175.196.in-addr.arpa

PTR record x.249.175.196.in-addr.arpa is unknown to us.

Read carefully the error message in the screenshot you sent again, the error is on ns53.domaincontrol.com<http://ns53.domaincontrol.com>

Having spoken to GoDaddy they confirmed the Domain is healthy.  Please see the below screenshot when using DNSWATCH to look up our mail server IP address.  You will notice that the Afrinic nameserver NS3 is not returning the PTR record.  Is this because the request from Airtel Tigo has not been actioned yet?
