I disagree

Assumed, the first lan interface has an address
That will be the "primary" address of the host exposed to the network.

You will setup an PTR record in dns: PTR

You will add an A record: A

so write in /etc/hosts:

delete any line telling is 127.0.0.*

any ip address belonging to a host should be resolvable *at the host itself*
(with ping for example) also in case of a failed network link.
