I made sure that rc.conf has nsd_enable="YES". Yesterday, the system rebooted and NSD didn't come up. It starts fine with "/usr/local/etc/rc.d/nsd start", but it did not come up on reboot. I just rebooted to test again, and it again fails to come up.

Not sure about the freebsd initscripts, but on Fedora/RHEL we make sure
that we do an nsdc rebuild if we find any of the zone files is newer
then the nsd.db, otherwise nsd will not start properly. Perhaps this is
what you are seeing now too? Specifically, if you removed a zone and it
is still in the nsd.db.
