In one of my scans, nessus reported a vulnerability allowing DNS zone
transfers (see below).  I have tried to verify this vulnerability
manually with nslookup and other tools. Apparently a manual DNS zone
transfer did not work! So I am just wondering if anybody knows what this
plug-in is exactly doing. I am not yet familiar with the scripting
language used.

I guess plugin tried an AXFR for a reverse zone not for a forward zone.
You can try dig(1) or host(1) from bind-utils to get the whole reverse
zone for 192.168.1.*:

$ dig @dns-server 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa axfr # You can append +notcp to 
force udp query.
$ host -l 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa dns-server
