True, you did ask that. We usually get the more general "all aliases
pointed to a given name" question.
I guess the answer to your question is to do a zone transfer of all
zones hosted by that server and look for relevant aliases. This _might_
have been a good fit for the old IQUERY (inverse query) mechanism, but
as I mentioned, it's not supported any more.
