Without knowing your specific situation we can't decide. The general
answer must be: the DNS who is authoritative for the IP. Who is
responsible / autoritative is stored at the RIPE. And as Luciano posted,
the responsibility can be delegated.

On the other hand, if you run a DNS in your LAN with your own private
domain, then of course your DNS reverse resolve the IPs, as long as you
configured not only a forward zone but a corresponding reverse zone too.
