The issue here isn't in nmap, but rather in the reverse DNS of your IP
range.

$ host 64.40.106.9
9.106.40.64.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer mail.thrixxx.com.
$ host 64.40.101.176
176.101.40.64.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer mail.thrixxx.com.

Both reverse zones (for 106.40.64.in-addr.arpa and 101.40.64.in-addr.arpa)
seem to be hosted at netnation.com
They can probably set a correct PTR record for your host.
