How would one monitor a name server? - e.g. and make sure it is up and responding properly to queries.

You may use custom shell monitor with the following command:
nslookup <known DNS address> <name server of question>
and apply content check to the output of this command - look for the IP address of this known address. If address is present this means the name server responded ok. You may also use dig instead of nslookup.
We can consider this for future and provide workaround for now.
