OK, after the changes, I added the DNS zones again and this time I can see them:
]# service named status
number of zones: 2
debug level: 0
xfers running: 0
xfers deferred: 0
soa queries in progress: 0
query logging is OFF
recursive clients: 0/1000
tcp clients: 0/100
server is up and running
named (pid 18523) is running...
Also, on localhost, the dig command shows correct output:
# dig @localhost any dtxigaming.com
; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 <<>> @localhost any dtxigaming.com

Question is, how and when do the zones transfer to the additional name servers? I have also modified the Bind9 file paths in their respective entries under ISPconfig3 and did a service restart.
Also, the example that I have followed showed the addition of Slave zones - as far as I understand, this is no longer the case in ISPconfig3 v.188.8.131.52
Is it OK to set the slave servers' IPs under "DNS Zone":
Allow zone transfers to these IPs (comma separated list) 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11
