What is reverse delegation? what is it used for?

Reverse delegation is reverse DNS record which map an IP address to a name. It is usually maintained by the organisation who receives direct allocations from an RIR. Reverse delegation is achieved by use of the special domain names (IPv4) and (IPv6). It is usually used to validate a forward DNS record, make network troubleshooting more user friendly by providing names instead of IP addresses and also as part of e-mail anti-spam best practices.
