I'm not sure if chrooted/vservered process can modify SCSI settings
(shouldn't imho) but it's better in this case to call named with "-n 4" or
whatever your number of CPUs/cores is.

the answer for OP here is, that the named will (hopefully) use all CPU's in
the system. The problem only comes from inability to detect the number of
CPUs, but the kernel will try to distribute load across all CPUs
