I had an issue with using dig to query my reverse lookups so had to
create separate entries in named.conf like:

# Special notation required for internet delegation (e.g. dig -x ...)
zone "192/" {
type master;
file "arpa.12.44.84";
allow-transfer { watercom; };
allow-query { any; };

# Standard notation required for direct lookups (e.g. dig @mydnshost -x
zone "84.44.12.IN-ADDR.ARPA" {
type master;
file "arpa.12.44.84";
allow-transfer { watercom; };
allow-query { any; };

That is to say for most purposes the first entry worked fine but if I
specified my host to dig the record from it would complain about
84.44.12.in-addr.arpa not found. Notice both records point to the same
arpa zone file.

I don't think you could split them for the latter entry but I didn't

I've got a /16 and it will be split into 3 subnets, and I want to create
a separate revdns zone for each one.

That's a public address space.
I found an rfc (http://www.rfc-archive.org/getrfc.php?rfc=4183) i tried
to do as it says but it won't work :/
