This is the syntx your looking for. If it is not working, there is something wrong with the program itself.

named-checkzone - zone file validity checking tool

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

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.

Enable debugging.
Quiet mode - exit code only.
Print the version of the named-checkzone program and exit.
When loading the zone file read the journal if it exists.
-c class
Specify the class of the zone. If not specified "IN" is assumed.
The domain name of the zone being checked.
The name of the zone file.


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