I need to change the authorative DNS server from one that is managed by someone else to one I have control over.

What is the best way to be sure I know all the entries I need to put in?

I used the NsLookup tool on the site network-tools.com, did a query type "any" and query class "any" to the server that is currently authorative.

I believe the results i got were complete
SOA, 2 NS, an MX and an A record for the site along with 3 other A records (2 for the name servers and one for a webmail name)

Best way would be to contact your current provider and have them export all the entries they have on file.

Unless they support zone transfers, which is a security hole and most likely not, then you will not get all your entries for a domain.

The scan you ran was against simply the "domain.com" record, not other records such as www.domain.com or ftp.domain.com or any others you might have.
