If you do not know what this is then you will not need it. You can look up your DNS here: http://www.seiretto.com/domains/dns/
You should double check you have the required DNS within your backup - if not then we suggest you use the relevant control panel to backup the DNS records from the actual DNS editoring page (where you originally modified your DNS records).
Login to the control panel (where you originally modified your DNS records), select the domain you need to backup and save that page - finally check the page you have saved has the correct information. Repeat the same for each domain.
If you are using cPanel, then once a cPanel backup has been created you will find the zone files in the dnszones directory.
