Client? I've just run a couple of tests with telnet, while watching the
logs of my caching nameserver, and I do not see any indication that the
client is doing a reverse lookup.

Are you perhaps meaning that the remote server is performing a reverse
lookup when you connect to it? If that is the case, it is almost
certainly the tcp wrappers on the machine that is doing it.
