Check out BIND's named-checkzone and named-compilezone, depending on  
exactly what you are looking for.  There are a number of command line  
parameters for fine tuning what you care about, and you can use the  
return value to determine if the zone is valid or not.

As for the serial number, that is some simple scripting depending on  
what value you use for the serial number.
