Ah, so your real intent in this thread is to propose an additional
sanity check in, e.g., named-checkconf -z (I don't think
named-checkzone can be used for this as it focuses on a single zone
content) so that it can detect an obvious missing NS from an ancestor
to a descendant.  I think that makes sense in general, if not for this
particular operational error.  Maybe IIJ can fund the extension:-)
