The first one that fails is looking for /etc/named.conf.  The second one shows its in /var/named/etc/named/named.conf

Those are different locations.  I suspect you have named_flags setup in rc.conf pointing to /etc/namedb/named.conf rather than the right location.  Its also possible that its not set in rc.conf but defaults in either the rc script or /etc/rc.d/named.  On my system it appears to default in /etc/rc.d/named.
