    Ok, im pretty noob but this is how i fixed my RNDC prob.
    I decided to post this because a lot of ppl were having this problem.

    After trying all the common fixes, i looked at the error log at /var/log/messages
    and found:

    Jul 18 00:40:31 localhost named: named shutdown failed
    Jul 18 00:40:31 localhost named: named shutdown failed
    Jul 18 00:40:31 localhost named[20557]: starting BIND 9.2.1 -u named
    Jul 18 00:40:31 localhost named[20557]: using 1 CPU
    Jul 18 00:40:31 localhost named: named startup succeeded
    Jul 18 00:40:32 localhost named[20559]: loading configuration from '/etc/named.conf'
    Jul 18 00:40:32 localhost named[20559]: /etc/named.conf:55: zone 'localhost.': already exists
    Jul 18 00:40:32 localhost named[20559]: loading configuration: failure
    Jul 18 00:40:32 localhost named[20559]: exiting (due to fatal error)

    so i deleted the localhost zone, and it was fixed.
    This may sound pretty stupid and simple but it had me very confused.
    I cant stress enough:
    CHECK YOUR LOGS!
