Validating named configuration files before "reload"?

Is there a simple way to validate the named.conf file and all included

The reason is quite simple, when doing a "bind reload" we'd like to
validate the configuration files before sending a "kill -HUP" to bind
process.  If the validation fails, the "kill -HUP" would not be send
to bind process and some error would print in the stderr.

I checked the contrib stuff and did not find nothing, so far.

Thank you,
Pierre B.
