Beware, however of modifying "base" files that were installed by the
package management system.  If you change /etc/named.conf and it gets
overwritten by your next package based upgrade (or the modified file
causes your automated upgrade system to stop upgrading that package),
you will be badly surprised.

(been there, done that, have the scrapes and bruises)
