Broken Reverse Zone

Why does this not work?

--------------------------------------------------
$TTL 3D; Reverse zone IP->DNS
@	IN	SOA	localdomain.	hostmaster.localdomain. (
			2007120101	;
			8H		;
			2H		;
			1W		;
			1D )		;


	IN	NS	phoenix.localdomain.

192.168.1.47	IN	PTR	phoenix.localdomain.

192.168.1.3	IN	PTR	charlesc.localdomain.
--------------------------------------------------

I generated that with glbindadmin. Bind loads it sucessfully and runs
with it. The forward zone equivalent works. But I get this:

--------------------------------------------------
root at phoenix:/var/named/etc# nslookup 192.168.1.47 localhost
Server:         localhost
Address:        127.0.0.1#53

*** Can't find 47.1.168.192.in-addr.arpa.: No answer

--------------------------------------------------
