For periodic updating you could you something like this in cron.monthly script:

#!/bin/sh

cd /root wget --quiet --passive-ftp ftp://ftp.internic.net/domain/named.cache cp /var/named/named.ca /var/named/named.ca.old mv named.cache /var/named/named.ca diff -u /var/named/named.ca.old /var/named/named.ca

File locations ofcource depending on your installation.
