The easiest solution is to download named.root from internic. Please note, that the included root is from 2004 and the actual version is from 2008. See diff:

I could also imagine a cronjob that updates the root file on a regular basis (eg. once a month). What do you thing?

File /var/named/named.ca is used as "root hints" file, not /var/named/named.root. named.ca is up2date.

It is not needed because root zone is not changed so often.
Oh. Then this is a very old config from myself (migrated from release to release...) - sorry for bugging! :-(
