To debug this further you may need to look in the bind logs and/or run 
it under debug mode. Ensure the packet is actually being received by the 
bind process.

You should also follow the advice others have given in the thread of 
reading the ARM for your version and using a valid minimally-caching 
named.conf. Don't run without a config - it's not a good idea, you're 
dependent on compiled-in defaults which may not be consistent across 
systems, distributions and package versions.
