extract of named.conf original is only for add some specific commands to don't touch the named.conf


# Include other things into the configuration file, things that
# automatic configuration tools that modify this file might make
# a mess of:  (Though, if you don't use such tools, you can do
# all the configuration within this file.)

include "/etc/named.custom";

and

## named.custom

# These are extra configuration options in a separate file, one
# that'll be left alone by other programs that might modify the
# "named.conf" file:

many time named.conf is too big to touch or to find same domains. or many times you need to modify constantly the named.conf. for this cases bind add a file to be the quick modify named.custom and you can modify at your pleasure without touch the named.conf

named.custom use it in many cases that you dont want to touch the original named.conf. and don't affect journalling
