yes, i forgot to tell everyone that i'm using bind-8.2.2.p5 on a FreeBSD
3.3-stable system. i've already configured the two named processes to
write different domain sockets:

	control {
		unix "/var/run/ndc_internal" perm 0600 owner 0 group 0;

	control {
		unix "/var/run/ndc_external" perm 0600 owner 0 group 0;

apparently, i was accessing the old manpage of `ndc' that's why i wasn't
able to get additional information about the command line options. thanks
for the info.
