I found that link previously and tried it. It didn't complain about that not being a valid setting, but it didn't change the outcome. I'm beginning to believe I may just have to upgrade to CentOS 7. It needs to be done at some point anyway, I just didn't want to do it now.

resolve this (besides upgrading this box to CentOS 7)?

Try setting `random-device "/dev/urandom";` in `named.conf`.
