bind on Linux is usually set up to run as user 'named'  For example:

ps -ef |grep named

named    29647     1  0 Oct17 ?        00:07:14 /usr/sbin/named -u
named -t /var/named/chroot

Check that your files have correct ownership and permissions.

ls -l /var/named/chroot/var/named/10.202.db.jnl

-rw-r--r--  1 named named 72782 Nov  1 17:35

-- S
