How long is the character in txt line? If it’s longer than 255, it will show that exact error. Exact thing happened to me yesterday.

You can separate with a quote to make it work.

Cannot figure out what is wrong here… must be something simple but after sitting in airplanes the last 40 hours and it’s 2am…

Only when I comment out the two lines in the end of the named.harriot, it goes through and BIND load the zone. With those two lines, get the following:
