I agree, to a point. The powers that be FINALLY required reverse entries for
everything, utilized or not. That is a good thing. However, refusing an RFC
sanctioned query return is "bad".

If the reverse lookup returns a real fixed hostname that matches the forward
lookup, but it still ALSO lists aliases, they refuse it. That is silly.

Everything you mention here is not what I was referring to - because the
mail you checked was sent from a customer site who I do not handle DNS for
:) I was referring to my hosting/colocation business which does get
delegation on even subnet boundaries.
