Yup.  Mark already answered this one.  He's right.  If you understand
the chroot environment, you will see where the permissions are set wrong.

While you bemoan the need to "become an expert", you are missing the

relatively basic knowledge of BIND and Linux.  You are not being asked
to become an expert, just a knowledgeable user.
