A PTR record is essentially the opposite of an A record. A records resolve names to IP addresses. PTR records resolve IP addresses to names.

A record = give me a name I'll give you an IP
PTR record = give me an IP I'll give you a name

Try it out in windows:
ping "www.yahoo.com"
Here is what I got:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
F:\>ping www.yahoo.com

now do a "ping -a IP-ADDRESS" which will spit you back the name attached to that IP
