Sounds like some or all of the records lack a leader element, and that
would lead to the "yaz_marc_read_xml failed" you've been seeing.
Making sure that each record starts with a leader element along the
lines of

  <leader>00000    a2200000   4500</leader>

might get yaz-marcdump to emit ISO2709 records.  However, for those to
be useful, you'll likely want to set positions 5, 6, and 7 in the
leader to values that make sense for the type of records you're
dealing with.
