Journal File Question

Is it possible to restore a zone file from its associated journal file?

The docs seem to indicate that a restart of bind will sync the two
files, but in practice I get such as this:

zone journal rollforward failed: journal out of sync with zone

The problem here is that a large portion of the zone file was
"accidentally" deleted.

I'm running BIND 9.7.0-P1

Kind Regards,
