You say "my" DNS servers - if you own them, why not just look at the
named.conf?  "grep zone named.conf" should tell you pretty quickly.

If you are using external hosting, you will need to talk to your
provider.   They should be able to provide you a list.

Subject: name server zone list


I want to be able to produce a simple list of the zones on my DNS
servers.  Is there anyway to do this with dig or any other tool?  I can
currently transfer a single zone with 

dig @nameserver "zone" axfr

but I want to see all zones hosted on my DNS server.
