Default bind9 problems

I have several questions,
firstly how can I generate a full log on bind9 somewhere?
I've tried the logging clause but it seems I wasn't able to figure it out.
Tt this moment it looks like this:
Code:
logging {
        channel default_debug {
                file "/var/log/bind.log";
                print-time yes;
                print-category yes;
                print-severity yes;
                };
        category queries { default_debug; };
        category network { default_debug; };
};
I'm trying to access log files in order to understand why my bind9 is not working. When I try to resolve something a 'timed-out' request comes back.
I've transfered zones from an old server and configured them carefully. I don't know where the problem is.. Can someone help ?

timeout usually means the packets are either not getting to the destination or not returning.

So.. can you suggest where to start traceing the problem.
Becouse I don't have logs either. /var/log/syslog and /var/log/messages are silent about problems with the bind..

Which distribution are you using? How exactly did you set up BIND? Is it running chrooted?
