Go back and reread what I wrote -- the problem is with FILE permissions.  
So if your named.conf file contains something like:

zone "" {
  type slave;
  filename "/etc/named/slave/";

named is not able to write the file  Check the 
permissions on the directory /etc/named/slave, and make sure that the 
user that named runs as has write permission.
