Right, but rndc is not chrooted. It's looking in /usr/etc, as
indicated by the error message.

To extrapolate, it seems reasonable to assume that named is looking
in /var/named/chroot/usr/etc for its named.conf, by default, although
of course this can be overridden on the command line (or in the init
script).
