Log rolling stopped working in 9.11.12 ?

Thank you for the obvious suggestion, Mark. It hadn't occurred to me
that a yum update might have clobbered my existing permissions.
Sure enough, there it was -
755 root:root /var/opt/isc/isc-bind/log/
Everything in that directory was still -
but the user "named" was unable to create anything new
Looking at my installation notes from earlier this year, I found the

I have re-applied that permission change, and things are happy again.
Which brings me to two follow-up questions.
A) Should I expect these file permissions be altered by a minor update?
I know I started at 9.11.8 and have updated to 9.11.9 and 9.11.10
without seeing this behavior.
B) Should I not be logging to /var/opt/isc/isc-bind/log?
The log path in my named.conf is currently set to a relative path
"../../log/query.log", but I could easily change it to an absolute path
Do things because you should, not just because you can.
