It looks like one of nanog's outbound servers doesn't have a PTR record.

Oops, fixed. The machines were moved to a new a
subnet this morning and I was so preoccupied with remembering
to create the PTR records that I completely forgot
the's. Bet that's a first. I suppose it's
progress to be thinking about v6 first and v4 second.

It will be much better when the OS's just register themselves in
the DNS. Humans shouldn't have to do this when a machine renumbers.
Named can already authenticate PTR updates based on using TCP and
the source address of the update. For A/AAAA records you setup a
cryptographically strong authentication first.
