Hey Gurus,
When I try to restart named, it fails with the following message:

[root at new-dns2 ~]# service named restart
Stopping named:                                            [  OK  ]
Starting named:
Error in named configuration:
/etc/named.conf:3: missing ';' before '}'
/etc/named.conf:11: missing ';' before '}'
[root at new-dns2 ~]#

And here is what my simple named.conf looks like:

[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 ~]#

What am I doing wrong? Can you please assist?

Many thanks in advance and have a nice day.
