[arin-tech-discuss] How do I know an ip should be REALLOCATE orREASSIGN?

Whether a block is reassigned or reallocated is a decision of the person
assigning/allocating the netblock to your customer.
Reallocations can be further subdelegated.  For example, you
'reallocate' a netblock to an ISP, who may in turn make further
subdelegations to their customers.
Reassignments are given to an organization that will be the end user of
the address space.  For example, you 'reassign' a netblock to an
enterprise organization or small business who will use the IP addresses
for themselves. 
Nothing about the record in ARIN when you search, tells you whether it
should be reassigned or reallocated, because no record exists, as you
have not created it yet.  The administrator handing out your IP
addresses makes the decision about whether to reallocate or reassign.

              I have an ip that I want to assign. But
when I url
-????-????-???? And
rLength>29</cidrLength></netBlock>. I got an error 400. But if I use
??-????-???? And type is "A" everything works fine. So my question is
how do I know that ip should be REALLOCATE or REASSIGN? Which field
tells me it should be A or S after I search on
