    What's on line 16 of the 'named.conf' file?

    If I had to guess, which is all I can do at the moment, I'd say that line
    16 of your 'named.conf' is the directory entry in the options block and it
    looks like:

         directory "/dns/etc";

    If this is the case, fix the directory to what it should be in the
    chroot'd environment and try again.
