The latest release of DNSViz [1] introduces functionality to validate zone
components before changes are deployed [2].  It doesn't doesn't replace
checkers that check the entire zone file, but it's a good supplementary

the delegation NS or DS records, or explicit names in the zone, which can
be specified on the command line.
