They should both be 'root:named'

ls -lad /usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb.d/
drwxr-x--- 2 root bind 4096 Nov 23  2016 /usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb.d/
ls -lad /usr/local/samba/private/dns/sam.ldb.d/
drwxrwx--- 2 root bind 4096 Nov 23
2016 /usr/local/samba/private/dns/sam.ldb.d/

Note: this is on Devuan where 'bind' = 'named'

Do not check anything in a 'sam.ldb.d' directory, check everything in
the sam.ldb file. As long as everything is okay here, then you do not
need to worry.

Can I suggest you upgrade to Centos 7, this will get you a more up to
date Bind.
