My forward lookup zone seems to be very clean, not having
any stale records. However, my reverse lookup zone has a
ton, many names for one ip address.

I've ran the scavenge process but it is still not
cleaning them.

Any ideas??

any help would be appreciated.

You may have to manually clean them up if you believe the scavenge process
ran and did't clean them up. Sometimes that can be caused by if you
statically created the records.
