The zone has been updated, but the changes are stored in a journal file
("zonefile.jnl").  You can look at the contents of the journal file
with "named-journalprint <filename>".

If you want to dump the current version of the zone to disk so you
can look at the whole thing, use "rndc sync <zonename>".

(That's assuming this is a fairly recent BIND.  If it doesn't support
sync, use "rndc freeze <zone>; rndc thaw <zone>".)
