IPv6 rDNS, delegation, and Google/Gmail

I've seen this question asked but not answered. I am a new business Internet account and assigned a static /56. Google/Gmail requires IPv6 PTR RRs; and it's good DNS hygene. How do I get the PTR zone for my /56 assigned to my non-Comcast name servers or is there some other magic?

 

Thanks in advance.

I am happy to assist in setting up a PTR record. Can you please reach out through private message with the name, address and phone number on the account?

The PTR for the A (specific account information hidden) now exists in the Internet ether and is fine but there is not yet a PTR for the AAAA.

 

nslookup (account specific information hidden)
** server can't find 1.0.7.1.8.a.0.c.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.1.0.0.1.d.6.1.0.3.2.0.3.3.0.6.2.ip6.arpa: NXDOMAIN

 

 

That should resolve to (hiding account specific information)
