Take a look at the following link which will show you how to backup ADI Zones respectfully. Use your netbackup to backup the location.

As long as the backup completes successfully you can be sure it was backed up.

AD-integrated zones also get backed up (along with the rest of AD) when you perform a system state backup of a domain controller.

If you are specifically using ADI then yes these Zones are stored in Active Directory. Performing a System State Backup will backup your Active Directory Integrated Zone. The link i have provided you initally is how to backup ADI DNS using the command line and it specifically backs up the ADI Zone without having to perform a complete system state backup.

If you are not using ADI you have to respectively backup all of the Zone file data on each server where DNS is being hosted.
