According to documentation PPA does not automatically create reverse DNS zones for the registered IP network addresses.
Manually create reverse DNS zones for all of your IP network addresses in Services > DNS Zones > DNS tab > Reverse DNS Zones.
Once a reverse DNS zone is created for a certain network, PPA will automatically add to it corresponding PTR records for all newly created domains.
