OES2 SLES DNS only 1 zone supported

I have a problem where DNS reverse lookup in not working correctly on OES2 SLES current patch level SLES10SP1 and OES2 not latest SLES10SP2 and OES2SP1
I have 2 x Netware 65SP6 servers which are the existing DNS servers servicing both Forward and Reverse Zones, I have added a third DNS server SLES10SP1/OES2 as above it will do Forward lookups or Reverse lookups but only 1 Zone at a time. Either Zone will work but only one at a time. When I look at the log only the one Zone is listed, even if both Forward and Reverse zones are selected in the DNS/DHCP Manager. Suggestions welcome.

underscores in the A and PTR records were preventing the zones from loading. See TID 7001908.
