If you are chrooting then all the paths compiled in to named, and the in
the command line options, and in the configuration files, are interpreted
relative to the chroot. You need to ensure that all your configuration
files are inside the chroot.

creates a symlink outside your chroot pointing in to it, so it won't help
named to find its files - though it might help you to find them :-)
