    Yes, I’m aware of the existence of traditional SysV startup scripts included with MaraDNS.

    I’m replacing them, in my environment, with systemd service files. I don’t expect you to adopt my custom installation method nor recommend it for all users.

    I just think it notable that /usr/sbin/zoneserver runs fine from the command-line or when launched from /bin/sh or /usr/bin/strace but not when launched directly by systemd.

    I wonder if it looks for some environment variable which systemd does not supply by default?

    I’ll probably dig through the code myself and figure it out; if I do, I may submit a PR on github.

    For now, I’m happy with the following service file:

    [Unit]
    Description=MaraDNS Zoneserver handles DNS zone transfers and any TCP DNS queries
    Documentation=man:zoneserver(8)
    Requires=network.target
    
    [Service]
    ExecStart=/bin/sh -c '/usr/sbin/zoneserver -f /etc/maradns/mararc'
    Restart=always
    
    [Install]
    WantedBy=multi-user.target
