Actually, after much oainful digging through rc files (which proved to
be a total red herring1) I did find the problem. The dirves are mouted
before named is started, hence the machine names need to be in /etc/hosts

Stupid error on my part, because I know this is the case for NFS!  Sorry
for the noise...
