    I've never ran into said problem. But It sounds like bind dosen't have permissions to touch /etc i could be wrong though..

    Your best bet would be to send a support request into cPanel

    This can arise on CentOS 5 servers where BIND-CHROOT is configured. Both /etc/named.conf.fixrndc and /etc/named.conf become symlinks to the same file. Our tech analysts can help you sort this out.

    go to /etc/sysconfig/named and make sure the following line is commented
    if not comment it (add # in front)

    # ROOTDIR=/var/named/chroot

    save and restart named
