It seems that you already set up the reverse for since
it is cyrania.com (your domain).

You may want to add to the cyrania.com IP addresses,
but if cyrania.com is used as a www host and shoud
not be used for this purpose, this is not OK.

In general, it is better to have a specific FQDN for each IP address.
For instance, would have nodename.cyrania.com as the
reverse and nodename.cyrania.com would resolve to,
where nodename is the name obtained with the "uname -n" command.
