Directory Write Error

Yum updated my bind and chroot. When it restarted named, I have an error in the log file:  "the working directory is not writable"
Is this the directory called out in my named.conf file?:

options  {
                    directory "/var/named";

Where should named.conf reside? I have it in the /etc/ directory with a link to the chroot directory. Should the permissions be 644?
