After 3 weeks of trying to diagnose a failure of bind9, to start I have to admit I need assistance.

Initially it was running correctly and when I made a modification to a bind file and re-run it an error msg came back

rndc: 127.0.0.1#953 bind9 start fail

It also fails to start on any other bind9 upgrade or required pkg.

grep on mysql returns nothing now even if it is running, and dig on 127 only works when I have my phone connected as a modem.

I don't have any more diagnostics that I know of, so some help would be appreciated as development has stopped.

Try to remove completely, then reinstall bind9: sudo apt-get purge bind9 && sudo apt-get --reinstall install bind9. You will loose local configurations, if you have them. –  enzotib Jun 26 '11 at 16:19
    
Do you have anything in the bind9 logs? IIRC they are located in /var/log/bind9/ –  tgm4883 Jun 26 '11 at 22:47
