My guess is you have bind-chroot installed (good thing). If so, named
is running in chroot jail, and can't access real /etc directory. What
named will see as /etc is what you see as /var/named/chroot/etc. So you
need to place your *real* named.custom file inthere. For convinience
you may (if you want) create symbolic link to it from /etc.
Note that creating symbolic link from /var/named/chroot/etc to files in
/etc will not work. Named will see link pointing to /etc/named.custom.
Since it is running in chrooted jail, it will try to access what it
sees as /etc/named.custom (which really is
/var/named/chroot/etc/named.custom). So basically, it will see symbolic
link pointing to itself.
