You have to many file descriptors open.
Are you running lots of virtual interfaces on this box?
Named uses 2 descriptors per interface (1 UDP and 1 TCP)
Assuming this is the problem limit the number of descriptors
named listens on (see listen-on and listen-on-v6).
Otherwise you have lots of incoming TCP connections
Otherwise you have lots of simultious zone transfers
see transfers-per-ns, transfers-in, transfers-out.
