A little information with your *colorfull* post would maybe help... Like what your box is running?

If you're running FreeBSD you should perhaps follow the /scripts2/doautofixer?autofix=bsdbindfix link that is displayed.

..and perhaps, upgrade BIND. If the upgrade didn't work, remove and then re-install BIND.
