What is the dig command to show all website under authoritative nameserver? Is it actually possible? If it's not, what is the other solution?

Thanks in advance.

Is it your authoritative server, or someone else's? – Shane Madden Oct 8 '13 at 19:20
My authoritative and someone else. Thank you. – sg552 Oct 8 '13 at 19:23
What does that mean? Do you control the DNS server or not? – Shane Madden Oct 8 '13 at 19:25
I have my own dns server. I want to know how to search my authoritative dns and other authoritative dns for list of domain. Thank you. – sg552 Oct 8 '13 at 19:28
There is no command to show all websites because DNS doesn't store information about web sites. I could have a web site named and how would you know that by querying DNS? – joeqwerty Oct 8 '13 at 20:43
