You simply need to create A record for to point In short when reverse DNS query for A record, it should resolve to appropriate IP address.

I think it kind of depends on your DNS management.  In Microsoft DNS you can create a record for "" and it will automatically create the subzones.  I don't know if all DNS management tools will work the same way.  Just try it.  A note about the record you mentioned above,  you can't have a record or zone with a period (".") in it, so "" is not a valid A record.
Hi John,

In DNS management console expand forward lookup zone, locate the right click on it then select Host A record apop-up window will occur there you have to either type or copy paste static.reverse and type the IPADDRESS.

Make sure you have enabled the option create pointer record in that pop-up window.

It will automatically create the A record.

If the reverse zone exist it will automatically  create the pointer record. Else you have to create the reverzone first and then have to create the PTR record manually.

Hope answered your question.
