Regarding query logs, you need to configure it explicitly.  Example:

        channel querylog {
                file "./named-query.log" versions 5 size 10M;
                print-severity yes;
                print-time yes;
        category queries { querylog; };

Regarding security logs, your configuration looks fine:

> >>         file "/etc/namedb/dns-security.log";
> >>         severity info;
> >>         };
> >>         category security { myfile-security; };

(of course, as long as the named process has a permission to write to
this file).  If you don't see a message, it should mean there's no
event at the severity of info or higher.
