I have two FreeBSD 10 machines on which I have installed the bind99 port.

The manpage for named on machine 1 says that it looks for the named.conf
by default in /usr/local/etc/namedb.  Machine 2's manpage says it looks
in /etc/namedb.   

Which is correct?  Is the /etc/namedb symlink even needed anymore?
