The DNS is an essential infrastructure service for Internet communication. It is then very important to make sure that a working domain name is correctly configured in the DNS.
ZoneCheck is intended to help solving misconfigurations or inconsistencies usually revealed by an increase in the latency of the application, up to the output of unexpected/inconsistant
results. The ZoneCheck configuration file reflect the policy: You can let ZoneCheck select the best test set to apply when checking a zone (for example, a specific profile for reverse delegation when under .ip6.arpa or .in-addr.arpa, or a profile used by AFNIC for zone under .fr). Alternatively, the use of a particular profile can be forced (for example by creating an RFC-compliant checking profile).
For instance, AFNIC and some other registries use ZoneCheck tool on a daily basis within their registration process to check the DNS configuration of the (to-be) delegated zone.
