Also, you need at least one NS record (maybe for "localhost.").
named-checkzone would have told you about both these problems.
Less serious problems:
It's better to use a $TTL directive than rely on it defaulting to
the SOA.MINTTL value (or specify all TTLs explicltly).
You probably meant "root.localhost." for the SOA.rname.
