I wonder if the spaces around curly braces that named examples always 
use are mandatory?  As in listen-on {;; };

Looks like it's not seeing named.conf, assuming that 
exists as the address of a local interface at the time when named is 
started, as Mel mentioned.  This can be a problem with ppp or mpd ..

What does 'realpath /etc/named' say?  Are you using the FreeBSD default:
% realpath /etc/namedb
% ls -l /etc/namedb 
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 21 Dec 12 02:37 /etc/namedb -> /var/named/etc/namedb

If you run '/etc/rc.d/named stop' and then '/etc/rc.d/named start', what 
shows up in /var/log/messages ?

What's in /etc/rc.conf concerning named ?  Any clues from 'rndc status'?
