I don't have a powershell command, but you can do it directly from the DNS console.
Just right-click the zone, and select Export List.

It did when I last ran the export.
I think in Windows XP it didn't export the timestamps unless you went and enabled the advanced view.

Click view, click advanced.

If it's a static record then it'll say static,  otherwise the timestamp should be displayed.
Both will be in the same column.

Why don't you try it, it won't break anything.
