Bug Description

The default install of maas-dns creates the following file /etc/bind/maas/rndc.conf.maas

Among it are the following two bind9 configuration sections:

key "rndc-maas-key" {
 algorithm hmac-md5;
 secret "(edited away)";

options {
 default-key "rndc-maas-key";
 default-port 954;

This breaks init scripts (sudo service bind9 restart) as they use the key called "rndc-key". I would suggest that maas explicitly provide the key that it wishes to use whenever it interacts with bind9 so that defaults don't have to change

Looks like a very good idea to me.
