Bug#1828: bind ndc start failure

Package: bind
Version: 4.9.3-BETA24-1

We installed bind on a fresh system.  We configured the nameserver and
wanted to start it, and tried `ndc start'.  It complained about
/var/run/named.pid not existing.  We tried /etc/init.d/bind start, and
nothing happened.  On closer inspection, the `bind' script redirects
stdout from ndc to /dev/null.

There are, I think, two bugs here:

(a) `ndc start' should not fail if there is no pid file.

(b) `ncd' should produce error messages to stderr, not stdout.
