I am calling named-checkzone not checkconf.
named-checkconf -k ignore -n ignore -i none <zonefile>

should read
named-checkzone -k ignore -n ignore -i none <zonefile>

the rest of the email is correct

Subject: named-checkzone behavior change?

I have downloaded 9.7.0-P1 and I am running into something odd with named-checkzone
I have a simple zone with an NS record that has no A or AAAA record.

named-checkzone has flags to ignore this. and this same command (see below) worked in 9.6

but given this zone file 500 IN SOA 2010051001 10800 3600 604800 86400 500 IN NS


zone NS '' has no address records (A or AAAA)
zone not loaded due to errors.

Is this a bug? or do I have a flag missing or incorrect?
