By default, BIND should log any errors to /var/log/messages. As the service is failing to start, there should be entries in the log to specify what's going wrong.

Can you try to start the service again and post any errors from the log?

You missing closing quotation marks in your named.conf.local file.
Change this:
file "/etc/bind/test.local.zone;

Open in new window

to this:
file "/etc/bind/test.local.zone";

Open in new window

In your named.conf.local file, you specify that the reverse zone file is "zone.rev":
file "/etc/bind/zone.rev";

Open in new window

but in your screenshot, the file is called "rev.zone". These need to match.

you need to reload bind service for zone change, then there is no unserviced packets
restart is for patching and configuration changes
