Setting up DNS Primary and Secondary Server



I've successfully set up a Primary DNS server with Bind9.  I've used the
instructions from the Debian Network Administrator's Guide.  I also
installed Bind9 on another server and created zone's in the named.conf
file that are of type slave and pointed the masters to my other server.
I restarted Bind and I see named running in the processes.  But I'm not
seeing anything get transferred from the primary server.  Shouldn't
there be something in /var/cache/bind?  Mine is empty on the Secondary
server.

I'm getting the following error messages in my syslog:

Why am I getting permission denied?  Port 53 is open.  What is the
master file?  I don't see anything called tmp-XXXXF424uu or similar.
