just to be sure, you're definitely running the right binary right? ie
you've set named_program to /usr/local/sbin/named in /etc/rc.conf,
you've installed bind over the old binaries (probably not a good idea),
or you've removed the old bind binaries entirely??

if you use 'cvsup' and you've removed the old named, make sure to put:
NO_BIND=       true

in /etc/make.conf
