I have had trouble in the past keeping reverses in sync. This is a real
hassle when you have to get somebody else to do the work.

When I got my easynet line I decided to avoid the trouble and use what they
have already assigned. I just CNAME my own hostnames to the appropriate
.dsl.easynet.co.uk names.

     myhostname     IN   CNAME     company-2.dsl.easynet.co.uk.
