If it's like my Mandriva system, named runs in a chroot environment

Apparently so. I removed the "directory" option in <named.conf>, copied
the <named.cache> and <name.local> files that were in /var/named/ into
/var/lib/named, and started the daemon using the init script. It worked!

/usr/sbin/named -t /var/lib/named -u named

I have no idea how I managed to start it with the original conf. When it
started this time, though, it synced with the master DNS server.
