bind: Checking a zone record for errors

Bind is the most widely used DNS service software out there, it is the default DNS service for all of the main distributions of Unix/Linux. While Bind is very popular it is also very tricky sometimes. One of the best ways to see if your edits are good and meet the DNS standards is to run a named-checkzone after editing a zone file and before reloading/restarting bind. slize:~# named-checkzone bencane.com /etc/bind/master/bencane.
