is it possible by using "sed" ?

This is the way regular expressions work. If you would explain why this is a problem you might get better results.

Ok.. I am almost near to my result. I decided to replace the whole dots in the file with \. and then search for the duplicates. Could you please tell me how to replace each . with \. in a file ?

I think you're misunderstanding. You don't need to modify the input file with the escaped dots (\.), just search for domains using the search term with escapes.

My pseudo code:

Code:
grep zone input_file | awk '{print $2}' | uniq (or pretty close to that)
for domain in "domain list from grep output"
do
  sed to replace . with \. in $domain
  grep -c escaped_domain from input file to get count
  if count > 1
  then
    echo $domain is not unique, fix file
  fi
done

You can avoid regular expressions by using fgrep instead of grep.
Try this:
Code:
fgrep 'abcd.efg.xyz.info' /etc/named.conf

This willmake your script simpler.
