Sorry not to give my feedback related with your suggestions sooner, but I
I have looked to the named messages after boot and apparently it was
everything ok i.e.:
First message: "starting (etc/namedb/named.conf). named 8.3.6-REL ....."
Second message: "limit files set to fdlimit (1024)"
Third message: "Ready to answer queries."
There is no messages related with the ROOT SERVERS, the file was updated and
there is a permanent network connection.
Running the "ndc status" the output is: "server is initialising itself"
After restarting the server manually, after boot, the status is: "server is
up and running".
The result after comment the kern_securelevel="2" and
kern_securelevel_enable="YES" lines in the rc.conf and reboot was the same
as described above.
Do you have any more suggestions to debug and solve this problem?

Hmm. There isn't enough information available to say what's going on
for certain, but what you are doing ought to work fine.
Do you have a permanent network connection which is available when your
system boots? If the network isn't available, named can't talk to
other nameservers and it will probably cause a very long delay which
matches your description.
Check /var/log/messages after a system reboot for messages relating to
named. You ought to see something like this:
May 11 15:21:19 <daemon.notice> pi named: starting
ed 8.3.7-REL Tue Dec 2 14:40:53 EST 2003
root at ns1.pkix.net:/usr/obj/usr/s
May 11 15:21:19 <daemon.warn> pi named: limit files set to
May 11 15:21:19 <daemon.notice> pi named: Ready to answer queries.
May 11 15:21:19 <daemon.warn> pi named: check_hints: A records
SERVERS.NET class 1 do not match hint records
If there were problems with your named.conf file or one of the zone
files, you'd see warning messages which ought to be fixed.
