My local DHCP + DNS server allows can use PTR rDNS records for extra verification, but only if the same assignments are not present in /etc/localhost file. What is a more secure way to resolve local hosts - PTR rDNS records or etc/localhost administration? What is more private?

Do it in the router / DNS server

Why would you need to hide rDNS info from clients on the network?

Why manage individual system hosts files....headaches is all you are asking for.
