Under normal circumstances if you are arriving into NZ and connecting to a connecting/interlined domestic flight your bags will be checked through and can be dropped at the international bag drop providing you do this at least 60 mins before your domestic flight. If you are under 60 mins you need to take your bags to the domestic terminal and drop them there.

If you need to check in for a domestic flight this needs to be done at the domestic terminal.
I've done this a few times SFO-AKL-ROT no problems, although maybe because I've had a bike with me? Bags were already tagged though
