Better make that 9.1.1rc5. It fixes some nasty bugs in 9.1.0.

Given that this is the only information you've provided, we can only
say that you have a syntax error around line 54 in named.conf. It
could be a broken view{} statement. Or maybe you're using the keyword
"view" somewhere you shouldn't. Post the config file if you want
someone to tell you what's wrong with it. The psychic skills on this
mailing list are not very well developed.
