How to get memory statistics?

Running BIND 9.9.4, we have set the 'memstatistics-file' option in our named
config file. My understanding is that memory stats will be dumped to this file
when named exits. However, no such file is created (having stopped and started
named a few times). I have checked other named log files and the general server
logs, and can find no error message or the like.

So, my question is how do we get memory stats from named?
