Where is my reverse DNS set?

I was changing some entries in our DNS records yesterday, and realized that the company handling our DNS-records, dont handle the reverse dns lookups.
I can see that several of reverse dns records are wrong, and some domains dont even have a reverse dns record.
How can I find out who is handling our reverse dns? Does it exist a tool that can find out where the dns answer originally comes from?

It will be your ISP (network connection provider) unless they've explicitly delegated that to you.

You can find out where a specific reverse lookup zone is with something like the following example:

1. Public IP address / subnet is: 1.2.3.4
2. Reverse Lookup Zone name is 3.2.1.in-addr.arpa
3. Name servers responsible for zone can be found with: nslookup -q=ns 3.2.1.in-addr.arpa

NSLookup isn't the best tool for chasing these down, however unless we get stuck there's little point in downloading better tools.

Thanks for great answer Chris-Dent!
nslookup -q=ns x.x.x.in-addr.arpa did the trick:)
