nsupdate doesn't take zone files as input; instead it takes a list of
(incremental) changes. The "invalid section" error refers to keywords in
nsupdate syntax which refer to parts of DNS UPDATE messages: the prereq
section, the update section, etc. See the INPUT FORMAT part of the
nsupdate man page for details.

You are trying to do what nsdiff does:
which turns the difference between two zone files into an nsupdate script.
