I send mine through named-checkconf to put it in a consistent state. 
This helps to reduce the includes and sort out the views and 
blocks logically.

See man named-checkconf.

/usr/local/sbin/named-checkconf -p >/var/named/named.conf.canonical ||\
echo -e "\nConversion failed, as will named if attempted" \
