DNS reverse lookup not working for one record in a zone file

Hi guys

I have this weird issue as

dig PTR @ns1 (ns1 is the master)

I get an answer so it resolves the record.

;; flags: qr aa rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 1

When I apply the same lookup on the slave ns2:

dig PTR @ns2 (ns2 is slave)

I get no answer for only one record in the zone file. However, I get answers for other records in the same zone

;; flags: qr aa rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0

Please note that the forward lookup works fine.

I d appreciate whoever could help please

Did you check the salve to ensure the record is there?
