Bell's ARIN records show 102.108.206.in-addr.arpa delegated to
nameservers named under bell-nexxia.net, which is a zone that Bell do
not currently run.
If you believe the dates returned by whois.crsnic.net,
"bell-nexxia.net" was only recently registered, while "bellnexxia.net"
was registered in 1999.
Maybe someone at Bell typo'd nameserver names when they filled out the
paperwork for 206.108/20, and someone else got fed up with waiting for
them to fix it (and hence the reverse DNS for these blocks).
