Retrieving all hostnames for an IP address...by RMaxwell (Novice)

RMaxwell has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Question, What is a good efficient way to retrieve from DNS all known hostnames for an IP address? Currently using an external call to host.exe from the dig support files for windows, but with over 1500 address to go through, running into cygwin errors because of execution speed.
This is to try to resolve a network monitoring application's issue with Windows DNS while running on WIndows.
Update: I realized this morning that I may not have been as clear as needed. I need to retrieve all A records for a given IP address. I currently have IP address that have a maximum of four A records per IP addresses. Thanks for all of your help!
