Instead of mucking about with SQL what I would probably do is configure
both servers as masters; then, on each, AXFR each of the zones, and use
Tony Finch's `nsdiff' utility to diff the results.

If I could only go the SQL way, I'd probably write a script which dumps
the domains and records tables on each (sorted) and diff those; it'll at
least give you an indication on whether there actually are differences.
