Server 2012 R2 PDC DNS defaults

I seem to have a couple entries in my Reverse DNS section I may have entered at some time and cannot remember why. They appear to also be the same IP as that of my two domain controller IP addresses. They show in this form:
 Name: Data:XXXXX.local and
Name: Data:pdc1.XXXXX.local

Name: Data:XXXXX.local and
Name: Data:DC2.XXXXX.local

DC2 is a Secondary DC for the domain and was my main DNS server in the old server 2003 AD.
I added pdc1 which is my new Server 2012 R2 PDC

My question is are these correct? I guess what I really neeed to ask what are the default DNS records that need to be in and showing in the DNS? Any help is appreciated.

The DNS settings you should see for Domain Controllers is the following...
Forward Lookup Zone = Host A record (same as parent) Data = IP address
Forward Lookup Zone = Name Server (NS) record (saem as parent)  Data = fqdn of the server

Reverse Lookup Zone = Name Server (NS) record (saem as parent)  Data = fqdn of the server
