Thanks Benjamin:

The folder "/var/log" (where the named logs are being written) is:


--and is owned by root

the log file itself is owned by a user/group called named, and is 

however, if BIND can write to the original log file, why wouldn't it
be able to roll it to a new file?

Anyway, I ended up touching a new file, chown'ing it to named:named,
and changed the log file in named.conf...and it all seems to be
working ok now!
