Since you are running FreeBSD 9.3, which also has a copy of BIND in the
base system, I suspect that the base version of named is getting
executed instead of the ports version installed under /usr/local.

When you installed the port, you should have seen the pkg-message, which

*   You will need to make sure that you have the following line      *
*   in your /etc/rc.conf in order to have the startup script         *
*   run the named version from the port:                             *
*                                                                    *
*   named_program="/usr/local/sbin/named"                            *
