I am seeing strange problem on my bind. I have created one configuraiton file(site_specific_sinkhole.conf)  under /var/named/ directory. 
Permission for this file is given as below
-rw-r--r-- 1 root named 0 Nov 12 22:00 /var/named/site_specific_sinkhole.conf
I have included this file in /etc/named.caching-nameserver.conf as below
include "/etc/named.rfc1912.zones";
include "/var/named/site_specific_sinkhole.conf";
But when i restart the named service, i am getting below error not sure why?
Error in named configuration:
/etc/named.caching-nameserver.conf:56: open: /var/named/site_specific_sinkhole.conf: file not found
