I get a strange error whenever I restart the server.

Bind doesn't autostart or start. I get the following error when I do service named start:

 _default/ file not found

After I do /usr/sbin/named -u named it works.

How can I make bind autostart without the error?

Error has been fixed.

Simply copy the 0.168.192.rev file from /var/named to /var/named/chroot/var/named also.
