BIND forward zone working reverse not working


I am having VPS server. I have domain on NameCheap and I registered my DNS there, configured BIND on my VPS and forward zone is working fine.

I configured reverse zone too but it seems there's already entry of reverse zone (I use OpenDNS) or something like that.

# nslookup x.y.z.w

It resolves to and not to my domain.

Where I have zone completely setup on my server x.y.z.w. Anyone have idea what further step I should take? Contact support or there's something I have to do?

You have registered your domain for forward lookups, so that works properly.
However, you can't register your zone, since someone
else owns it. Odds are good that your ISP either owns or manages it. Try
contacting them and ask them to delegate to your servers.

Or better yet, just ask them to put in a PTR record for your hostname.
