Are any of the zones there the AD domain zones ? 
I personally would stop using the 'internal.zones' file

These are the rest of my named conf files;

 cat /etc/bind/named.conf

include "/etc/bind/named.conf.options";
include "/etc/bind/named.conf.local";
include "/etc/bind/named.conf.default-zones";

cat /etc/bind/named.conf.local 

// adding the Samba dlopen ( Bind DLZ ) module
include "/usr/local/samba/private/named.conf";

cat /etc/bind/named.conf.default-zones 
// prime the server with knowledge of the root servers
zone "." {
	type hint;
	file "/etc/bind/db.root";

// be authoritative for the localhost forward and reverse zones, and for
// broadcast zones as per RFC 1912

zone "localhost" {
	type master;
	file "/etc/bind/db.local";

zone "127.in-addr.arpa" {
	type master;
	file "/etc/bind/db.127";

zone "0.in-addr.arpa" {
	type master;
	file "/etc/bind/db.0";

zone "255.in-addr.arpa" {
	type master;
	file "/etc/bind/db.255";
