Thanks! It seems that's what been going wrong ever since 6.3 or so on my 
machine as well.
You can report it using send-pr(1), however - you will have to test what 
happens if you comment out named_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf, then 
update /etc/resolv.conf to use your ISP's DNS servers and reboot. If ntpd 
does not start at all then ("because you told it it requires named"), then 
it's not the proper fix.
However, I believe REQUIRE is only used for ordering the scripts, not actually 
disabling one if a service in the REQUIRE line isn't started.


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
