1. what for is this directory in FreeBSD 8.3
/var/named/etc/namedb/working
and
/usr/local/etc/namedb/working in FreeBSD 10

2. Can you provide the brief and complete mechanism of chroot-ing for FreeBSD 10?

3. I have /etc/namedb -> /usr/local/etc/namedb  is this somehow related with chrooting?

4. Could the named servers run on different version of BIND? can it somehow affect to transfers from master to slave?
if have this version on master
bind-base-9.9.5P1_3 BIND DNS suite with updated DNSSEC and DNS64
and this on slave
bind910-9.10.1                 BIND DNS suite with updated DNSSEC and DNS64

The second is manual build which is unsupported by all means. You cannot even uninstall it.

Don't tell me that I should reinstall that FreeBDSM.

It's because it doesn't have P letter? Does 'P' state for production?

Your problem by large. You have no way to address any security issues in such build.

CentOS has very elegant bind-chroot package (I read in other posts you have CentOS too)
