You do not need an option, it is by default:

% named-checkzone example example.zone
zone example/IN: NS 'ns1.nic.example.example' has no address records (A or AAAA)

Unfortunately, it does not set the return code > 0, so you have to
test the output. ('-n fail' seems useless) No option to turn every
warning into a fatal error?
