Check out zkt (http://www.hznet.de/dns/zkt/).
There are a few more involved tools out there, but zkt sounds like what

Looks good to me. The sigs seem to be within their validity interval,
but there doesn't appear a DLV record in dlv.isc.org, so I can't
validate. (Actually, I *could* snarf the ksk from the ANY query and
manually configure it as a trust anchor, but I am lazy. Moreover, that
won't tell us if something goes wrong if/when you publish a trust-anchor
DLV record or DS record, when NET becomes signed.)

For authoritative service, you don't need it. Only if you're running a
validating nameserver do you need it, and it's 'yes' by default in
recent versions of BIND. You still need to configure a trust anchor (or
anchors) if you want to do validation.
