The permissions should be:

ls -lad /usr/local/samba/bind-dns/
drwxrwx---. 3 root named 70 Apr 17 16:39 /usr/local/samba/bind-dns/

ls -la /usr/local/samba/bind-dns/

drwxrwx---.  3 root named   38 Apr 17 16:39 dns
-rw-r-----.  2 root named  797 Apr 17 16:39 dns.keytab
-rw-r--r--.  1 root root   830 Apr 17 16:39 named.conf
-rw-r--r--.  1 root root  2096 Apr 17 16:39 named.txt

Can you post /etc/named.conf
