On the bigger question of "charging" for reverse DNS: I would consider it part of the initial setup, or a deferred process tied to the initial setup. But if a customer swamps you with changes or updates beyond a reasonable amount, I'd consider delegating the reverse zone, or charging based on the number of changes. Just my 2 cents.
