I am looking for a graphical interface to interogate a local server about the DNS entries it has. Basically I want a graphical dig / nslookup environment similar to Zenmap.

I would also prefer it to be runnable on an Ubuntu desktop.

I want to use it for testing out a DNS server.

Zenmap is for penetration testing, not for looking up dns entries. –  Brad Gilbert May 9 '09 at 4:32
