Been attempting to figure this out myself (so I can learn) but I can not figure out how to alter the script RudiC created to delete instead of print contents to a text file. Everytime I test the print to .txt file it works great.

I have also tried doing the following one liner that isn't working either.
cat domains.txt | while read Z; do sed -e "/^zone \"${Z}\"/,/^};/d" named.conf.tmp > named.conf.out; done cp -p named.conf.out named.conf.tmp;  done

I think my way isn't as nice as RudiC way so I am going back to trying to figure out how to change it to delete those entries.

Any help would be great. (Hints even)

Using awk you cannot modify the file on the fly. Just redirect the output to another file.
awk '...' domain.txt file > new.conf

The new.conf will have everything except the domain entries you wanted to delete. And then you can rename this file to whatever you want.
