How do I query for all domains using a specific primary / secondary DNS?

I would hazard a guess that it depends upon the root domain registrar 
(eg. Nominet for .uk) or whoever runs the primary DNS server you want to 
Sure, you might be able to do something akin to a zone transfer, but the 
DNS server admins would have to have given you/your server permission to 
do so first.
