I use the "size" argument and also have my named logs on tmpfs.  This keeps
a ceiling on it and also reduces disk activity considerably.

logging {
    channel query_logging {
        file "/var/log/named/query.log"
         versions 3 size 100M;
        severity debug 3;
         print-time yes;                 // timestamp log entries
      category queries {
