no, it does not work that way. /etc/rc.d/init.d/named is a startscript,
and that usually only reads the first parameter (start) and ignores all
other arguments. For a quick test (given that you have more than one
resolving DNS server for your clients):
1) use "ps -ef", look for the "named" process, write down all
commandline arguments that are listed after the process name
2) stop the BIND DNS Server from
the start-script: /etc/rc.d/init.d/named stop
3) on the commandline as user "root", start the BIND nameserver with
"named -4 <all other arguments from 1)>"
5a) if it works, find out how to configure extra parameters for the BIND
DNS Server on your operating system, add the the "-4" parameter
5b) stop the running BIND process with "rndc stop" (if RNDC is
configured correct [it should!]), else do a hard "killall named"
6) start the BIND nameserver again from the startscript
