Check to see if you have the daemon exec /usr/sbin/named or maybe some
other places. Just search around. If not you prob. need to install bind
package. I think the v4x of bind package did not have ndc.
Note if you do have Bind 4xx it also uses different config file
/etc/named.boot not /etc/named.conf. At least this was true when I
switched to Bind 8xx a few years back.
