Hi,
I have configured a dns server on ubuntu 9.04 with bind 9 but I have a probleme to set up the reverse dns I have the following error : ** server can't find 3.207.168.192.in-addr.arpa: SERVFAIL  when using nslookup .  The dns forward is working good. It's a basic setup,  something is  wrong but I cannot figure it out.

I attach my configuration file.

Thx in advance for your help.

Your config line zone "0.in-addr.arpa" tells named that you can resolve any address. Remove it. Also remove the 127 line and the 255 line.
The complained-of address 192.168.207.3 can not be resolved by any file you have posted.
Network 127/8 should be defined in /etc/hosts and nowhere else.

HI, I followed your instructions as you can see bellow and I have the same error.
Are there any other files involved in the reverse resolution?

The ip 192.168.207.3 is my mistake it was from an other test, wrong copy/paste.

I've attached my corresponding files. They work, so if you modify yours to match, then yours should work too.
named.conf.txt
