http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...bind-rndc.html

Quote from REDHAT website:

"BIND includes a utility called rndc which allows you to use command line statements to administer the named daemon, locally, or remotely. The rndc program uses the /etc/rndc.conf file for its configuration options, which can be overridden with command line options.

In order to prevent unauthorized users on other systems from controlling BIND on your server, a shared secret key method is used to explicitly grant privileges to particular hosts. In order for rndc to issue commands to any named, even on a local machine, the keys used in /etc/named.conf and /etc/rndc.conf must match."

The 953/tcp means it is using a TCP connection on Port 953.

You can run ntsysv as root and turn off the automatic starting of that program. When running ntsysv, it will be in the list if it is started by the xinetd daemon, which it probably is because it sounds like it is starting without your knowledge.
