    Description

      AXFR record type is useful to get a list of DNS records for a zone:

      $ dig -t axfr example.com @192.168.1.1 | head -10
      
      ; <<>> DiG 9.9.5-4-Debian <<>> -t axfr example.com @192.168.1.1
      ;; global options: +cmd
      example.com.             86400   IN      SOA     ns1.example.com. admin.example.com. 2011100600 3600 1800 604800 3600
      example.com.             86400   IN      NS      ns1.example.com.
      alice.example.com.       86400   IN      A       192.168.1.2
      bob.example.com.         86400   IN      A       192.168.1.3
      bob.example.com.         86400   IN      A       192.168.1.4
      bob.example.com.         86400   IN      AAAA    38a1::3
      bob.example.com.         86400   IN      AAAA    38a1::4
      ...
      

      Not all DNS servers allow zone transfer, because that might not be good from a security perspective.

      So AXFR support in Zabbix agent would be useful for monitoring the DNS security setup, as well as zone content, too.
