That suggests that you haven't actually got the caching-nameserver RPM
installed, so you are lacking the zone for it to do a reverse lookup

Could you post the output from the following commands?

cat /etc/resolv.conf
rpm -q caching-nameserver
cat /etc/named.conf
ls -l /var/named

Or feel free to email me off-list.
