I can't make any sense of your question. A forward lookup to ftp.tis.com
gives a CNAME record for portal.ex.tis.com which in turn give an A record of
A reverse lookup on 188.8.131.52 immediately gives a PTR record of
portal.ex.tis.com. There's nothing double about it.
The only good use I've heard of for wildcards is in MX records. And it's not
really a good use at that.
So what EXACTLY is your problem? Can you please describe something that your
trying to do but can't? Can you provide as many examples as you think are
warrented? For example, it would be nice if you provided information like,
"when I try to telnet to that host, it drops me immediately, but when I ftp to
it, it waits one minute and then lets me in. I can't ping to that name, but I
*can* ping to that address."
