Error from http://www.zonecheck.fr/ (name and ip changed)
---- fatal ----
f: Loopback is not resolvable

* Ref: IETF RFC1912 (p.13 4.1. Boot file setup)

These are set up to either provide nameservice for "special" addresses, or to help eliminate accidental queries for broadcast or local address to be sent off to the root nameservers. All of these files will contain NS and SOA records just like the other zone files you maintain.

* site.exemple.net./192.168.0.1 (it'snot the real name/ip)


Final status

To remove error from zonecheck.fr, I've commented
//zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" {
// type master;
// file "db.local";
//};
and add this :
//// MAKE MANUAL ENTRIES BELOW THIS LINE! ////
// be authoritative for the localhost forward and reverse zones, and for
// broadcast zones as per RFC 1912
zone "localhost" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/db.local";
};

zone "127.in-addr.arpa" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/db.127";
};

zone "0.in-addr.arpa" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/db.0";
};

zone "255.in-addr.arpa" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/db.255";
};
