To check your named(8) configuration, you need only say
dns-boot-check
and the file named(8) configuration file will be read, and alsoall of the files it refers to. Various cross checks will be made betweenthe files, too.

If you want to check a named(8) configuration, but without installing it first (which can be importantif you need to guarantee continuity of service) put you new configurationfiles together in a temporary directory, with relative paths.

dns-boot-check -I. etc/named.boot
This will access all of the files as if they were below "." (the currentdirectory) rather than absolute. This can simplify configurationmanagement issues, too.
