Problem to add new domains!

You don't mention if the zone entry that you showed us is on the
master or slave, but the slave server has to know it is supposed to
serve the domain in question:

zone "" {
	type slave;
	file "cpie1/";
	masters { ip.of.mas.ter; };

This is thoroughly explained in the DNS and BIND book.

``And indeed people sometimes speak of man's "bestial" cruelty, but
this is very unfair and insulting to the beasts: a beast can never be
so cruel as a man, so ingeniously, so artistically cruel.''
(Ivan Karamazov, in Dostoyevsky's 'The Brothers Karamazov')
