Hi Adam,

We are an RIR and we only manage reverse DNS for our reverse zones only and **NOT** for reverse zones of prefixes that have been allocated to our members. As such we do not maintain any PTR record. As we allocate a prefix to a member, the member is delegated the management of the reverse zone associated with the prefix allocated. The member should inform the parent (AFRINIC) where which authoritative name servers are being used by creating a domain object in the WHOIS database.

More information here:

Hope this helps.

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?
