What should the reverse/ PTR zone setup look like?  ie if I had a flat file aka 
bind and named.conf its straightforward I can just look at the file(s), and 
that a reverse zone file is created on the salve however I have no screenhots 
or anything to indicate if I have setup that reverse function correctly.  For 
instance there is nothing in /var/named/slaves, I have assumed that the slave 
data from the AD masters is actually held in the LDAP.....so how do I prove 
AFAIK there is no special requirement.

Any host name for IPA server should translate to IP addresses. PTR records for those IP addresses should point back to A/AAAA records used during original name->IP translation. (PTR should point to A records, not CNAME records.)

Actually it doesn't matter where records are stored, as long as DNS translation via servers configured in /etc/resolv.conf is functional.

Also I notice when I create a zone using the dns ui it creates a file called, but when I add a replica it creates another zone file 3.70.10 and 
populates it....which it shouldnt as the MS AD is the master.....yet I used 
--no-reverse in the replica command...
I'm not sure if I understood it correctly. Where are the files created? Can you post them to the list?

Looking at the first server's error log it looks like one of your
replicas has a wrong PTR record and GSSAPI cannot therefore find the
right ticket.

Make sure your DNS is properly set up (or /etc/hosts entries) for all
the servers.
