Well, as 'man named' says about -t option:
chroot() to directory after processing the command line arguments, but before reading the configuration file.


So, if named chroots itself into /var/named-delegated directory, config file locates in /etc/named.conf

named -t /var/named-delegated -u named -c /etc/named.conf
should do it.
