wrote one of those yesterday, for this I had no questions asked.

Please deligate ptr records to and
for and

(I think this is everything you need if you run bind on class c)

$ORIGIN 170.250.66.in-addr.arpa.
$GENERATE 208-215 $ NS $
$GENERATE 208-215 $ NS $
$GENERATE 208-215 $ A
$GENERATE 208-215 $ A

$ORIGIN 83.31.69.in-addr.arpa. NS NS A A

and as for being OT, I don't think so. my feeling is dns (and good
names) is the cornerstone of a good installation.
