Well, they would set up the records as I listed in my previous
message, so that referred to
2.tummy.150.17.216.in-addr.arpa.  Then on the ISP side you
simply add the following to your named.conf:

	zone "tummy.150.17.216.in-addr.arpa" {
		type slave;
		file "db.216.17.150.tummy";
		masters {; };

So, you set up your own server to pull the records from the client's
server(s), and the rest of it falls into place.

 I have a large collection of sea shells, which I keep scattered on beaches
 around the world.  Maybe you've seen it...  -- Steven Wright
