It wasn't intended to be mindless.  Since you obviously didn't 
cut-and-paste the error message, we couldn't be sure that you even got 
the words right.

Anyway, a "Permission error" means a problem with file permissions, and 
has nothing to do with the network.  If you're not running named as 
root, you need to ensure that the userid you're running as has access to 
all the secondary zone files it needs to write.
