AOL's list claims a transient issue is on their side and to try again in 24 hours.  Though you might have gotten on their over-zealous spam filter.

I am getting the below error when test the RDNS in AOL site. How can fix this

RDNS Results

DNS Server Response:
NXDOMAIN

Failure! Unfortunately we were unable to resolve Reverse DNS for the IP address you entered. Contact your ISP or e-mail administrator to modify these settings. Also please note the following points:
AOL does require that all connecting Mail Transfer Agents have established reverse DNS, regardless of whether it matches the domain.
Reverse DNS must be in the form of a fully-qualified domain name. Reverse DNSes containing in-addr.arpa are not acceptable, as these are merely placeholders for a valid PTR record. Reverse DNSes consisting only of IP addresses are also not acceptable, as they do not correctly establish the relationship between domain and IP address.

The message tells you exactly what needs to be done.  Contact your ISP and ask them to create a PTR record for your sending IP that points to the FQDN of your sending server.  You also need a match A record for the FQDN that resolves to the sending IP.
