Bind 9 - zones transfer - permission denied

I have a primary master name server and a slave name server.
When a start the slave server I get the following error:

Jan 31 17:42:41.799 dumping master file: /etc/named/tmp-XXXX2RSNyT: open: permission denied
Jan 31 17:42:41.799 transfer of '' from failed while receiving responses: permission denied

On the master server the zone files has 744 permissions set and is own by root.

Why do I get this permission error if the files have set Read access for everybody?

Did you set the slave as allowed in named.conf on the master (allow-transfer)? Permissions on the zones on the master aren't going to matter to the slave (as long as the master's copy of BIND can read them).
