yes, technical_test is command you should use.

this command check more than you said. Complete description of all tests
can be found here:

> And if yes, then which level should i be using ?

Three basic tests and their level are:

1. Existance of nameserver (can connect to DNS)
2. Presence of domain on nameserver (answer DNS query for this domain)
3. Nameserver is Authority DNS for this domain

In your case you should call with report level 3 to cover all these
three tests.
