That should work fine. Though I personally like to add trailing dots
everywhere to ensure all the software takes the name as FQDN.

I also have stub-prime: "no" for my zones, but that is the default, so it
should not matter for you.

Are you sure the authoritative nameserver is working? can you try:

dig -t ns 42.168.192.in-addr.arpa. @192.168.42.3
