Hi,
please check the 'allow-transfer ...' setting in the 'options'  part of named.conf on the server whose slave you are!

I still doesn't know what is going on with DNS Server, I created a  new named.conf and copy & paste the content of the original one, and now it doesn't stop the service and the error i ask for now it doesn't appear.

Thanks to all.

I assume you restarted named to use the new config. Maybe that restart just did the trick!
