Is it possible to have BIND transfer all the second level domains for a single TLD to my local machine? (I'm fully aware that this would be a massive data set)

Also, how do I track changes on a daily basis?

For some TLDs, this is possible. For example, many country-level TLDs with small numbers of second-level domains, permit this. –  David Schwartz Jan 29 '12 at 5:34

Theoretically maybe, but in reality almost every properly configures their domain servers to not permit zone transfers to un-trusted sources (in this case you).

So in the practical reality, the answer is no this is not possible.
