I would like to set up an authoritative DNS server using BIND for corporate use. I find the syntax of the zone files quite verbose so I am wondering if someone is aware of a CLI tool that somehow eases the management of these zone files. Any idea or pointer would be greatly appreciated 😀

Have you tried nsupdate()? I use it for a multi view corporate DNS setup with TSIG keys and haven't really found anything else that works better. Note that once you start using nsupdate, you do not normally manually edit your zone files.
