The only real difference is that you don't have a full /24
assigned to you. This needs to be handled specially.

See RFC 2317, Classless IN-ADDR.ARPA delegation.

Assuming you have been delegated and you and
your ISP decide to use 32- as the zone
name your side should look something like this.

You will have a local copy of the reverse for the /24 your
address space is delegated from. This will allow you to
always have the CNAMEs to map from the well known names to
the names that actually have the PTR records even when your
external link is down. You will also have a zone
(32- with the PTR records.


zone "3.2.1.in-addr.arpa" {
type slave;
file "slave/3.2.1.in-addr.arpa";
masters { /* ISP's auth servers here */ };
notify no;

zone "32-" {
type master;
file "master/32-";
