Filter out TSIG records from zone transfer

Hi folks,

When I use "dig" to do a zone transfer, using TSIG, then the resulting
zone is interspersed with TSIG records. Some tools, such as
"dnssec-verify", don't like these records.

Is there any way to tell dig not to print these TSIG records? Currently,
I pass the zone through an awk script to filter out these records, but
it would be nice if I could tell dig itself to suppress them.
