Try 'rndc dumpdb' to examine the contents of the cache or 'rndc stats'.

The dumpdb command creates a file /var/named/var/dump/named_dump.db and the
stats command appends a short report to /var/named/var/stats/named.stats
by default (although these can be changed very easily by modifying named.conf)
