I think there is confusion because bind doesn't run as root. The op has correctly identified the files and directories within private that bind needs access to. It now only remains to allow the bind user into private. As the op has it, only root has access. My argument as to 0755 on private are based upon a default source build and make install. I notice that the op has a non default location and so may need other security measures as we'll. The fact remains that if you are using bind, then the user running it must have access to private.
Sorry about the top post. Android limitations.
