As a technicality – Reverse lookup is not required by the standard. It is strongly encouraged unless there is a good reason not to. Remember to stress that point with people.

The actual PTR record will need to be done by the netblock owner, whoever that is. Might be you, but also might be your provider. It also won’t be 192.168.x.y, obviously.
