You could use any nameserver that does recursion from you. 

$ dig soa

; <<>> DiG 8.3 <<>> soa
; (1 server found)
;; res options: init recurs defnam dnsrch
;; got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 6
;; flags: qr aa rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 2, ADDITIONAL: 0
;;, type = SOA, class = IN

;; ANSWER SECTION:               1D IN SOA (
                                        2002091801      ; serial
                                        6H              ; refresh
                                        1H              ; retry
                                        1W              ; expiry
                                        5M )            ; minimum

It is not recommended to do recursion for others, but in cases
like this it shure is handy.

You could also "test" your domain at "" a
tool i "borroed" from nic-fr where they use it for "sanitizing customers
zones" before allowing them to register.
