auth-zone reverse DNS

Hello list,

I have been playing with Unbound's new-ish auth-zone feature and it's
great. However, when I set up an auth-zone for reverse DNS, drill returns
an NXDOMAIN. Has this just not been implemented yet? As a work-around I've
done the following inside of unbound.conf

local-zone: "" transparent
local-data-ptr: " myhost.mydomain"

I had the following auth-zone for reverse DNS but it did not work.
     name: ""
     zonefile: /etc/unbound/myzone
     for-downstream: yes
