I'm running rndc stats and trying to determine how long the stats are good
for. I'm querying the server start time by a couple methods but they're not
the same. Which one should I rely on?

$ date -r /var/run/named/
Sun Jan  1 03:38:04 EST 2017
$ ps -C named -o lstart=
Sat Dec 24 12:03:47 2016

I'm using the version bind-9.8.2-0.23.rc1.el6_5.1.x86_64 package on CentOS.
