According to the Bind 9 Admininistrator's Reference Manual at 
http://www.bind9.net/Bv9ARM.ch06.html#AEN1607 , 
the default for logging is this:  

logging {
     category default { default_syslog; default_debug; };
     category unmatched { null; };

channel default_syslog {
    syslog daemon;                      // send to syslog's daemon
                                        // facility
    severity info;                      // only send priority info
                                        // and higher

channel default_debug {
    file "named.run";                   // write to named.run in
                                        // the working directory
                                        // Note: stderr is used instead
                                        // of "named.run"
                                        // if the server is started
                                        // with the '-f' option.
    severity dynamic;                   // log at the server's
                                        // current debug level

channel default_stderr {
    stderr;                             // writes to stderr
    severity info;                      // only send priority info
                                        // and higher

channel null {
   null;                                // toss anything sent to
                                        // this channel

A quick grep of /var/log/syslog.log for "named" shows only a few entries here.
and no named.run in /home/named, of course I've not hit it hard either yet. 
Just droping this here for when it goes to be added to the config.
