Well, I never let my read of these files suffice. You should check them
with the tools from bind:
If they pass those tests, then check the resolution using just a single ip
that is NOT jailed on this server using dig or nslookup. If those are
working then adjust your jails.
If you go step-by-step you will quickly get it working.
