Goofy COVAD DNS/rDNS

What is going on here? And can anyone duplicate this?


# host h-74-0-89-47.lsanca54.covad.net
h-74-0-89-47.lsanca54.covad.net has address 74.0.89.47

# host 74.0.89.47
47.89.0.74.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer h-74-0-89-47-static.lsanca54.covad.net.

# host h-74-0-89-47-static.lsanca54.covad.net
Host h-74-0-89-47-static.lsanca54.covad.net not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

In other words, the DNS says 74.0.89.47 = h-74-0-89-47-static.lsanca54.covad.net, BUT h-74-0-89-47-static.lsanca54.covad.net != 74.0.89.47.

In the past 74.0.89.47 used to = h-74-0-89-47.lsanca54.covad.net and in fact h-74-0-89-47.lsanca54.covad.net still = 74.0.89.47.

Any idea why COVAD (I presume) has configured things so goofy?
