/etc/rc.d/named is the rc script to control (start, stop etc.) named,
and this script is "inactive" unless  you've specified that named is
to be enabled using the named_enable variable. You can get around the
need to activate the variable by prefixing your commands with the
'force' keyword (e.g. /etc/rc.d/named forcestart, etc.)

Use sockstat(1) to figure out if the control port (953/tcp) is
listening. 'sockstat -4l' should show a listener on 127.0.0.1:953.

Also, 'start' is not a valid command to rndc. You would have a chicken
and egg problem; if named has not been started, then there is no
service to handle the start command to rndc. Use the rc script to
start named and rndc to control its runtime operation.
