I put the allow-recursion clause under my options, the #service named
restart failed. Where exactly should I place this allow-recursion clause?

[root at new-dns2 ~]# cat /etc/named.conf
options {
         directory "/var/named";
        allow-recursion (;

zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" {
        type master;
        file "db.127.0.0";
[root at new-dns2 ~]#

[root at new-dns2 ~]# service named restart
Stopping named: .                                          [  OK  ]
