Well, your DNS needs to be authoritative for both forward and reverse.
If you are trying to do this for less then a /24 block the zone files
get messy quick because of the 8bit boundaries.  You seem to be trying
to do this for a /16.  I'll bet you're missing the named.conf entries
and related reverse zone files:

Odds are you'll want to have zones:

zone "" {
  type master;
  file "master/
  notify yes;
zone "" {
  ;; or slave config since you'll have more than 1 ns
  type slave;
  file "slave/";
  masters { x.y.z.a; };

Or some larger splits of that.

You're going to have give me a netmask for more help.
