Isn't it kind of obvious? You are checking the syntax of the file
named.rfc1912.zones, but the ACL is refers to is defined in another
file. How will named-checkconf know that the ACL is in another file
called named.caching-nameserver.conf?

You would do better to run named-checkconf on named.caching-nameserver.conf.
