RDNS PTR Plesk Web Server

Plesk 8.6 / CentOS
I have a client that hosts their website on my Plesk server.
They have an in-house Exchange server which sends mail directly via DNS.
They have ATT for ISP.
I asked ATT to setup RDNS for their inhouse servername -> Local Office IP.
ATT wont setup RDNS but will transfer the DNS zone.
So I had them transfer it to my webserver nameserver.
I setup a PTR record under the clients domain account.  IPADDRESS > office.domain.com

When I run a report at dnsstuff it shows that ATT has given my server authority but when queried it doesn't reply with a PTR record.

I just moved this webserver so it got new IPs but that was a couple weeks ago and i highly doubt its DNS lag.  
This did work prior to upgrading the webserver.

12.144.217.82 / 8      PTR      office.arcoa.com.
is how its set in Plesk

How I am searching:

The PTR record is setup by whoever owns or administers the IP block (range), not by the person that manages the DNS zone. However *sometimes* this is the same person or company.

anyway I found its not possible in Plesk without breaking some other things so I just routed their mail through a smarthost.
