If your own DNS works at your own site, you can see what the rest of the
world is getting by any of the following:
-To do a quick check to see that the world is getting the right 
records: try
recursive queries (e.g., dig) against opendns.com's nameservers.
-Do a series of non-recursive queries, following the delegation tree 
the root down to your zone's delegated authoritative servers.
-dig +trace does the latter for you.
