zone-lint is tool that verifies the specified zone for RFC-compliance and points out potential problems. It can also simply dump the contents of a zone.

This tool doesn't operate by parsing BIND config files, or what have you, but by performing DNS requests (beginning with a zone transfer request) to validate what's currently published. While this does have the detriment of not being able to check changes before they're published, it has the advantage of validating not only the zones in question, but any DNS records referenced thta lie outside of the zone(s).
