DNS errors - lack thereof

I receive daily emails listing any DNS errors on our system. There has not been a single error for months. Possible reasons for this:

1. No one has made any errors. I find this unlikely. During my time in Support, everyone made errors sometimes. And when I started getting error reports, it was common for something to come up at least every week or two.

2. We don't deal with DNS as much as we used to. I considered this a possibility until I checked the update reports - changes are still being made every day. Besides, if people have less exposure to DNS changes, they're more likely to make mistakes.

3. The error report is broken. Maybe it's time to make a fake zone and break it, so that I can test that the report is still working...
