Yes, but not with '172.19' ;-)
I get the same results, but there is a problem, the OPs ipaddress is for
an internet domain:
host -t PTR 188.8.131.52
184.108.40.206.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer
I do hope that the OPs 'domain.lan' is 'snantx.sbcglobal.net' or he is
using someone else's IP range, but then again, I hope it isn't, because
if it is, his DC is internet resolvable.
