The port has probably been updated to NSD 4, which does *not* have nsdc
any more. NSD 4 now has a new command called nsd-control. I expect the
port to have installed the man pages, so do the following to familiarise
yourself with NSD 4's new commands:

man nsd
man nsd.conf
man nsd-control

Alternatively, download a tarball of NSD 4's source code and read the
file called NSD-4-features in there.
