I think I can safely ignore these warnings for

configuring command channel from '/etc/bind/rndc.key'
couldn't add command channel file not found

It appears rndc is for the following.

"BIND includes a utility called rndc which allows command line 
administration of the named daemon from the localhost or a remote host."

I will be using either samba-tool or Microsoft tools to manage the dns.
