the same zone file for your /27 and whole /24 ? This way you won't see
reverse names for rest of the /24, which may cause problems to you.

it does not exist. Your ISP seems to have your delegation records in the
44.12.in-addr.arpa zone. However 192/27.84.44.12.in-addr.arpa is delegated
to 3 servers, of which 2 exist, of which only one returns answer...
