What's in base looks OK

rcorder /etc/rc.d/* |egrep  'ntp|unbou|NET'

local_unbound starts before NETWORKING and ntpdate requires NETWORKING

check where bind fits in when you run 

 rcorder /etc/rc.d/*  /usr/local/etc/rc.d/*

If it's out of correct order I'd suggest opening a new bug report
against the bind port.

If it's already correct try enabling netwait in rc.conf.
