Thank you Alain, but actually I have authorized both zones
in Windows DNS server settings - both for forward and the
reverse zones. But the reverse zone isn't replicated and  the
"file" (specified in named.conf) isn't created for the reverse zone.

I suspect maybe the zone name is wrong here?
(i.e. not accepted by the Windows prim. DNS server):

zone "42.121.10.in-addr.arpa" IN {
       type slave;
       file "slaves/10.121.42";
       masters { 10.121.42.40 port 53;};
       check-names ignore;
};

Regards
Alex
