Good advice, but sadly named-checkzone will not pick up that particular
error, as admin at for SOA.rname is syntactically valid.
It just doesn't mean what the OP thinks it does, mapping in RFC 282x 
terms to "admin at clickonline"@net. (I suppose using -D might give you 
a clue when it escapes the "@" in the output.)
