Lastly, here's a section from the FC1 release notes talking about BIND's now using a chroot environment for increased security:
The BIND nameserver has had its security tightened. The /var/named/ directory is no longer owned by "named", but rather by "root". Slave zone files should now be stored in the new /var/named/slaves/ directory, which is owned by "named". In addition, a new bind-chroot package makes it possible to run the named daemon in a chroot() "jail" (located in /var/named/chroot/) for greater security.
