NAME
       named-checkzone - zone file validity checking tool

SYNOPSIS
       named-checkzone [ -d ]  [ -q ]  [ -v ]  [ -c class ]  zonename filename

DESCRIPTION
       named-checkzone checks the syntax and integrity of a zone file. It
       performs the same checks as named does when loading a zone. This makes
       named-checkzone useful for checking zone files before configuring them
       into a name server.

       -q     Quiet mode - exit code only.

       -v     Print the version of the named-checkzone program and exit.

       -c class
              Specify the class of the zone. If not specified "IN" is assumed.

       zonename
              The domain name of the zone being checked.

       filename
              The name of the zone file.

RETURN VALUES
       named-checkzone returns an exit status of 1 if errors were detected and
       0 otherwise.
