I take it that "this dir" means /var/chroot/named/etc/namedb, then perhaps
yes. I agree although not 100%, since my current tree looks like:

$ ls -al /var/chroot/named/etc/namedb
drwxr-xr-x  6 root   wheel   512 Jul 19  2008 ./
drwxr-xr-x  4 root   wheel   512 Jul 19  2008 ../
-rw-r--r--  1 root   wheel   259 Dec  3  2004 127
-r--r--r--  1 root   wheel  1525 May 30  2008 Makefile
drwxr-xr-x  2 root   wheel   512 Feb 15  2006 RCS/
drwxr-xr-x  2 named  named   512 Nov  4  2004 cache/
drwxr-xr-x  3 named  named   512 Apr 23  2007 pri/
-r--r--r--  1 root   wheel  2517 Nov  1  2007 root.cache
drwxr-xr-x  2 named  named  3584 Apr 24 11:40 sec/

[my primary zones are in pri and my secondary zones in sec]

And I don't really see the need to make the whole namedb directory owned
by named. Even the pri directory does not need to be writable by named.

Well, it needs to chroot there, but then it could chdir() to etc/namedb.
I will look if this is feasible when I get some cycles. For now commenting
out the test is the same behavior that we had in the previous versions
of named.
