  Err .. serious question ? if bind-chroot is installed the default root
path is the chrooted one for the config app. I assume you are thinking
of a caching name server or somesuch - this is really another package
and it should deal accordingly.

  For any real DNS, I'm kind of hard pressed to imagine a DNS admin as
clueless as you suggest .. but ya never know ...
