Not really...  if you download and build source, there's a tool that
will print all the supported options (bin/tests/cfg_test --named --grammar)
but it doesn't print the default settings.

But, if you've downloaded the source anyway, the defaults for nearly every
option are set in bin/named/config.c -- scroll down to where it says
"default configuration" and read from there.
