	Are you sure that dnswalk will actually check the structure of 
the zones, i.e., compare the delegations from the parent zone to what 
is defined within the child zones, and then issue errors if they are 
different?  My understanding was that dnswalk checked the contents of 
the zones, but didn't actually compare the delegations from the 
parent to those defined within the child.
