    Commercial services such as domaintools name server monitor come to mind.
Apart from these, also ICANN's Cetralized Zone Data Service:


    Otherwise;  the person to ask the question needs  to have  the "zone file
    information".  nameserver list data feeds from the  TLD registry operators,
     of every TLD they want to gather nameserver information for.
    For certain TLDs;  this may be available -- for example,  Verisign  .com
    and .net  "TLD Zone file access program".
    These data feeds are likely at  substantially high application, approval,
    and paperwork requirements for acceptance, for each TLD, and substantially
    high cost for each TLD   -----  therefore,   not   generally an option,
    so  dailychanges or other commercial services  will be your best option..
    There is certainly no WHOIS or DNS query that will provide you this;
    which is essentially a search for database entries based on the  IP
    addresses that  NS record right-hand side values  resolve to.
