Default Bind DNS cannot find in-addr.arpa

Hi All,

I started toying around with O'Reilly's DNS and Bind book today, but I'm having some minor problems with my rDNS. I can forward lookup using nslookup, but my reverse lookup doesn't seem to work.

Hope somebody could point it out.

Forward lookup
[root@ns2 var]#nslookup orange

Name:   orange.real-websolutions.net
Address: MY IP
Reverse Lookup
[root@ns2 var]#nslookup MY IP

*** Can't find MY IP rDNS.in-addr.arpa.: No answer
I've also added txt files from:

/var/named/db.My IP rDNS

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction!
