I am currently trying to get reverse dns running and am having a problem. I get the following error when running host command  host and it answers with this: 

Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

Here is a sample fromm my reverse zone file

$TTL 1d
@       SOA     pebkac.domain.com. helpdesk.mail.domain.com. (
                1027200501   ;   Serial
                10800        ;   Refresh
                3600         ;   Retry
                604800       ;   Expire
                38400)       ;   Negative cache TTL

                        NS      birdman.domain.com.                      ;
                        NS      pebkac.domain.com.                       ;

$ORIGIN 2.168.192.in-addr.arpa.
11              IN      PTR     birdman.domain.com.              ;

I am running subnets in the 192.168 range (192.168.1 / 192.168.2 / 192.168.3). Any ideas on where I am going wrong with this?
