Bell's ARIN records show delegated to 
nameservers named under, which is a zone that Bell do 
not currently run.

If you believe the dates returned by, 
"" was only recently registered, while "" 
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).
