I can check again, but it may not be possible. I do agree that it's always best to create those records, especially to help with just the situation you ran into where you're trying to troubleshoot traffic to an unknown address.
I can't understand why that provider doesn't provide PTR records. They are necessary to conform to the rules for instance for NS and MX records. You might point out to that provider that there are ways to delegate PTR records see rfc2317 if managing a record for a customer is to much for them.
