6.1. Boot File

This is the file that is first read when named starts up. This tells the server what type of server it is, which zones it has authority over and where to get its initial data. The default location for this file is /etc/named.boot. However this can be changed by setting the BOOTFILE variable when you compile named or by specifying the location on the command line when named is started up.
