In /etc/bind/named.conf.local, I added the following line after the line
// include "/etc/bind/zones.rfc1918";
I then used the SuSE convention I was shown of db.light-family.com and
copied to zone.light-family.com (also in /etc/bind/ directory) which

I thought I was being failry vanilla, but I'm still getting lost as to
where files are in Debian vs SuSE. I am a total Debian noob.
SuSE Bind is 9.2.4 (as I recall it is an old 9.0 or 9.1 SuSE distro)
and the Bind on debian is 9.3.4

It sounds a bit as if you are not loading the file you think you are
loading. "Unknown option" doesn't usually come from a zone file, but
from a config file - but $TTL is in a zone file, not a config file.
Are the BIND versions the same? How about posting the actual fragment
that gives the error?
