FreeBSD defaults to running named chrooted. /etc/namedb is actually a
% ls -la /etc/namedb
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 21 Jul 6 06:24 /etc/namedb@ ->
so the files referenced are in fact exactly the same file. However, the
flags from the log extract don't look like the defaults to me. (I'm
running the dns/bind98 port, and the equivalent info from the log line
is '-t /var/named -u bind')
Gary, what named related settings do you have in /etc/rc.conf? You
almost certainly don't need anything more than:
syslogd_flags="-ss -l /var/named/var/run/log"
so named can log to the system syslog.
