/var/run point to /run which is tmpfs and subfolders needs to be 
re-created at boot, normally there should be a config which ensures that 
and be part of the package

cat /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/named.conf
d /run/named 0755 named named -

if that's missing "/etc/tmpfiles.d" is the location where you place 
manual stuff - /usr/lib is apckage area, /etc is admin-area
