What happened here with the whole /var/named/chroot/var/named thing?
Is there a reason for this?

yeah, i put my named zone files under chroot and it works, if you put it inside /var/named, it wouldnt resolved at all. i'm still not sure why they put it under chkroot environtment, but it works though.

Because of security concerns. bind has been somewhat...holey in the past. In a root kind of way. This way, if there are still root holes in the code, the worst that can happen is a rooted chrooted enviroment. Not at all as serious as a rooted box.
