If the zones are ad integrated then there is no master.

You can see what machine holds the fsmo roles

You can check which machine is the 'master' of a zone.

Right click the zone in DNS then click the SOA tab

Ok I see all that now, why would I not be able to transfer a reverser lookup zone.  The two before it worked fine but this one will not transfer.

All should transfer on their own.
A reverse lookup zoen isnt crucial and you can always delete it and recreate it with no ill effects.  Then see if replication happens from one machine to another.
