From the error log, it looks like you have a number of problems:

1. You have implemented views, but not all zones are within a view. If you use views, then have to put all zones in a view. A zone can be in more than one view, but there is no such thing as a global zone.

2. Some of your zone files could not be found. Did you specify a slave zone as a master zone?

Here you will find the Bind 9 Administrator Reference Manual which will give you complete information on Bind setup and configuration.
