bind 2.1a3 on centos 6.4

Please let me know if there is a more appropriate list.

Here is a question you probably don't hear every day.

We are moving our DNS from a Solaris platform to Centos

I installed
BIND 9.8.2rc1-RedHat-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.4

on Centos and copied by zone files and config file.

named seems to be working fine.

I always run nslint when I make table changes, I ran nslint
on the tables on this machine and it reported no errors.

Note that I have a "source" directory where I make changes,
and then I move the files to a working directory to for the
daemon to read.

# /usr/bin/nslint -ddd -c /etc/dns-source/named.conf-test
nslint: doconf: opened /etc/dns-source/named.conf-test
nslint: doconf: opened nslint.conf
nslint: 0/131072 items used, 0 errors

Problem - I know there are errors. This is a sample of the errors
I see on my current production machine. Some are resolvable, some
are intractable (I don't know if nslint can handle parked domains).

nslint: Missing "ptr": ->
nslint: Missing "a": ->
nslint: Missing "ptr": ->
nslint: in use by and
nslint: Name referenced without other records:
nslint: Missing "ptr": ->

But the point being, that I would expect some errors to be produced
on the new machine I'm setting up.

I don't know what is happening that I'm getting no errors, but it
as some of the errors are correctable, I would expect them to still
exist (vs errors that perhaps a newer nslint might better understand
and have eliminated from the report).

I know nslint but work, so it has got to be something I'm doing, but
I just don't see it.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

						thank you,
