	BIND doesn't care.  The DNS specification allows as many IP 
addresses as you want for a given name, and as many reverse records 
as you want for each IP address.

	That said, many applications cannot handle more than one reverse 
record for a given IP address, but that is the problem of the 
application -- BIND doesn't care.
