Windows 2003 DNS server is giving me an “Associated pointer (PTR) record cannot be created” error.

I have our web server on the same network as the workstations in the office. I am using a local DNS Server(Windows 2003) so everyone in the office can access our website by adding mydomain.com and point it to internal server. But when I go to add mail.mydomain.com and the mx records I get this error. (The IP for mail.mydomain.com is not local)
“Associated pointer (PTR) record cannot be created, probably because the referenced reverse lookup zone cannot be found.”
I realize that this has to do with using a local DNS server and not a GLOBAL DNS Server.
My question is how do I go about adding mail.mydomain.com?
