    reverse zones are not a necessity, i would not bother, although, Jay_Jay70 is correct, it is quick, and relatively painless.

    Good Luck,

    It should be an option within the Primary zone configuration as well to create a reverse pointer. Just check the box and these will be created automatically for you. You can use ping with ipaddress -A switch so that it will translate the name listed in AD DNS as well. Kind of a nice tool to have.
