Thank you for your response. I fixed the parenthesis and it worked.
I made little modification below. By default the output of the gethostbyaddr module includes three item (hostname, aliaslist, ipaddrlist). However, in my output I just what the hostname field. So I created a list but I am not able to pull out just the  item from this and instead I get the following error:TypeError: 'int' object is not subscriptable. I looked up the error but most examples that I found were not applicable to my code purpose.
in_file = open('top500ips.csv', 'r')
out_file = open('top500ips_out.csv', 'w')
ListOfIPAddresses = 
for line in in_file:
name = socket.gethostbyaddr(line.strip())
out_file.write(line + '\t' + "No resolution available for ")
Also, could you please give some explanation of '\t'.

You don't need csv, you aren't using it.
