How to enable named to log client queries.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP3
Open Enterprise Server 2018 (x86_64)

How do I permanently enable the named service to log client queries to a file?

I do not want debugging, just client query logging.

Here is what I’ve tried without success:

options {
querylog yes;

logging {
# Log queries to a file limited to a size of 100 MB.
channel query_logging {
file “/var/lib/named/log/named_querylog”
versions 3 size 100M;
print-time yes; // timestamp log entries
category queries {

    # Don't log lame server messages.
    category lame-servers { null; };


rcnovell-named restart

What am I missing?
