I have bind9 but my problem is not the tools but the syntax of samba-tool :

I have created a zone



samba-tool dns add <my ad> 19.172.in-addr.arpa 0.11 PTR server1.sc.local

but this command create a zone !!!!!!

Must I create another zone like 0.18.172 before ? And what is the syntax
for create a PTR  record with classe B network ...
