I think this entire time you have been a lot closer to being done than
you realize. Other that your comment about the mailhost typo, I think
you have been struggling more with the tools (nslookup, dig, host) used
to verify whether your DNS server is working than with the DNS server
configuration itself.

Note that dig has a "-x" option useful for reverse name resolution.

"dig -x a.b.c.d" is equivalent to "dig ptr d.c.b.a.in-addr.arpa"
