BIND: named.conf file

BIND operational functionality is controlled by a file called named.conf normally /etc/named.conf (Linux) or /etc/namedb/named.conf (BSD's).

The named.conf file declares both global properties for BIND and the zones for which the configuration is a slave or master. Each zone referenced requires a zone file. By default zone files are located in /var/named but this can be changed using the 'directory' parameter in named.conf.
