You will need two reversezones, probably  '1.10.10.in-addr.arpa' and 
'10.10.10.in-addr.arpa', to create them (you may already have one of them):

samba-tool dns zonecreate 1.10.10.in-addr.arpa -U Administrator

samba-tool dns zonecreate 10.10.10.in-addr.arpa -U Administrator

Run them on the DC.

You could create just one reversezone, but adding records gets a slight 
bit more complicated ;-)
