Thanks but I didn't find my solution there which is why I asked here.

Anyhow, I do see yet another off behavior. My file is running as a 
linked file under /var/run/ linked to 

However, in /var/run, named will not even start unless I have a directory 
called named. Without the directory, named doesn't start. With it, it starts 
and it automatically sets up the link.

Stranger still, I can't set the path. In my named.conf, I actually have it set 
to /var/run/named/ and it seems to be ignored. 

What's going on?
