DNS errors can be difficult to solve. Some useful commands can help you find the origin of SERVFAIL error

Global configuration check :

named-checkconf /etc/named.conf

Check each zone with associated datas :

named-checkzone example.com example.com.hosts

That's what you should see if no error is detected :

zone foo.example/IN: loaded serial 2002022400 OK

To try on the client side, use the dig command :

dig soa example.com
