Description of problem:
user "named" can't write under /var/named which is owned by root by
default. This brings up the problem when the system is configured as
slave server: the zone files transferred from the master need to be
dumped here. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up /etc/named.conf to run a slave server
2. service named restart
3. check /var/named
Actual results:
zone files from masters are not created

Expected results:
the files should be seen here

This is a security issue.  If you want to create slave files you
should create a subdir called slaves with privs that named can write
and place your slave files there.
