the README file that comes with BIND 9.0.0 clearly states:

There are a few known bugs:

On FreeBSD systems, the server logs error messages
like "fcntl(8, F_SETFL, 4): Inappropriate ioctl for
device". This is due to a bug in the FreeBSD
/dev/random device. The bug has been reported
to the FreeBSD maintainers. A similar problem is
reported to exist on OpenBSD.
