	It's operating per design and it's operating properly; rndc
	is nothing more than an interface to allow admins to provide
	commands to the running named instance and if named isn't
	running there is nothing that rndc is able to do from that
	point forward so it indicates to the user that it can't
	communicate - seems logical to me.
