I looked at the DNSSEC section of the bind test suite (bind-9.9.0b2/bin/tests/system/dnssec) to see if a key rollover test is part of it. I didn't see that, but it may be elsewhere, as the test suite is pretty elaborate. The test suite does contain a simulated root server (ns1), so I bet that with a little ingenuity you could devise a key rollover test.
