Ah, that *is* what you mean.  The nameserver that the *fax server* is
asking for reverse DNS queries for your LAN addresses (which I'll
assume are private) isn't answering.  You really should be running a
nameserver on the faxserver even, or perhaps especially, if it's
internet connected... make it authoritative for 192.168.whatever, or
whatever your LAN addresses are -- that's for the *reverse* zone
