I'm going to assume you did something wrong, because dhcpd doesn't use the
filesystem to make Dynamic Updates, and chroot()'ing only affects a process'es
view of the filesystem.

Having chroot'ed named, are you sure it's running the correct config file?
Does it listen on the correct addresses, is it answering authoritatively for
the relevant zone(s), are the SOA.MNAME fields and NS records correct?
