A few things first, this is what I have in my files:
named_flags="-t /var/chroot/named -u named"
Now, if your using chroot everything is relative to the chroot
directory. In the case of bind9 it's /var/chroot/named. So all your
configuration file should go in there e.g. your named.conf should be in
/var/chroot/named/etc and you shoudn't put your zone files under
/etc/namedb but under /var/chroot/named/etc/namedb instead.
Now restart syslogd to get it to notice that your running named9 in a
chroot environment. You should just then be able to start named9 and
