Notjing to worry abvojt. It means that pdns server is not configured
to run with
enabled and relying on systemd for starting and stopping.

The general Unix rule is, if nothing is said all is OK.

With pdns_control option --socket-dir= I managed to make pdns_control try to read from the /run/pdns-df dir but I can´t see how to make it use the pdns-df.controlsocket (the existing one) and not pdns.controlsocket which pdns_control insists on using.
I leave that one to people running systemd (I'm not).
