Try to figure a basic conf for BIND on Mac Catalina

I have been working on this for days. Anything other than Caching-only configuration will not register anything. Port 53 will not open.
Looking for help with a configuration that will allow this server to be authority for  2 domains and and forward for all others. Don’t know if I am missing something on the Macintosh but I have followed every configuration I have found on Google and read every document I could find on BIND. Even the sample configuration for the Authoritative Server in the BIND9 documentation yields no joy. The Caching-only will but not the Authoritative.

Any advice would be helpful!
