But your still need to setup the 'jail' (/directory/to/jail) to
contain all the necessary files, as named will not be able to
access any files outside of the jail. At a minimum, these are the
config files and /dev/null. You will also need the libraries (unless
you compile static) and a couple extra things, like /dev/random for
the secure dns/tsig stuff.

no. but it will just not work if the jail is not setup right.
