I have a /29 net for which I want a bind instance to be responsible for doing the reverse lookup. I know that for a net like I could configure my zone as in

zone "" in { ... }

But now I only want to manage the net from this DNS server. Anything I have to set in the server responsible for the neighbors?

In the DNS server that is authoritative for the enclosing /24, setup a series of CNAMEs to an appropriate namespace you setup on your server, as per RFC2317.
