I have a bind setup with
  - root hints installed and fowradrs set
  - authoritive information on the 104.168.192.in-addr.arpa domain
  - local information about some (private IP space) domains
reverse lookups of addresses for 192.168.104.40 cause BIND to dail out. Why?

If you read the man page on bind you will see a list of reasons why bind will fail. one of these reasons may include the fact that 192 is a non routed, non advertised network and hence bind can't get the information it requires when doing the reverse lookup on this IP. Also see RFC 1918 for more information.

Hope this helps.
