There are two configuration file trees, one under /etc and the other
under /var/named/etc, for named. The former is provided by the bind9
package, and the latter I conjecture by the gbindadmin package. Since
the latter is designed to run named in a chroot jail, I went with it
by modifying /etc/default/bind9 like so:

OPTIONS="-u bind -c /etc/named.conf -t /var/named"
# Set RESOLVCONF=no to not run resolvconf
