There's an nslint program that's included with BIND, although I don't know
if it's been updated to know about named.conf format (actually, I think it
may only check zone files, not boot/conf files).
You could start up another instance of named, specifying an alternate port
to use on the command line (so it wouldn't interfere with the real named)
and check the log to see if any warnings come out.
