Bind-9.3.1 problems with Logging Date

I actually have two issues with the named (but only on one server).  The 
first issue is that the Date/Time field is being logged in UTC format, 
instead of Local time.  As I said this is only one of Many Server, and 
all have similar configurations.  I have RTFM'd the FAQ indicated that 
there was an issue with the chrooted version, which I am not currently 
running.  Does anyone have any other suggestions where to lock?

Another issue is when I attempt to load a large number of zones.  
Similarly configured machines can load all of the zones in under 20 
seconds.  This particularly challenged server cannot seem to manage the 
load, even after 5 minutes.  I investigated suggestions with the 
localhost definition not being the first entry in /etc/hosts, and have 
corrected this ordering, without appreciable results.

I would like BIND to log the correct information in syslog first, then 
attempt to resolve the processing of the include file.

Thanks in advance.
