"ndc stop" on AIX4.3.2 reports the following when named is not running:

ndc: error: ctl_client: evConnect(fd 3): Connection refused
ndc: error: cannot connect to command channel (/etc/ndc)

This makes sense of course, but wouldn't a message reporting that
"named is not running" be more appropriate?

One of our DNS Admins has also reported that "ndc stop" does not
always stop named on AIX, and returns the above message.
Has anybody else seen this bahaviour on AIX or any other platforms?
