rDNS authoritative name servers


Hey Guys,

Just was one would use whois domain.com to find the authoritative name servers of the domain, is there a command/flag for dig/nslookup to find the authoritative name servers of an IP address for setting reverse DNS ?

For example, the IP address 4.2.2.2, PTR resolves to vnsc-bak.sys.gtei.net.

How does one find out the authoritative name servers which are responsible for 4.2.2.2 ?

Both commands:
Code:
dig -x 1.2.3.4
nslookup 1.2.3.4
will tell you the authoritative dns server(s).

Regards
