not running a current bind, eh?  :P

the 8.x.x series bind dynamically picks up and drops interfaces as
they appear and disappear, and can be told on which interfaces to
listen. can actually have a publicly available,
non-recursive name server to answer the queries for the zones for
which you need to be authoritative on the interface(s) to which those
zones are delegated.

then, you can have (if you want) another bind listening on other
interfaces for other stuff.  like the "internal dns" server that you
mentioned.  or maybe a recursive, caching-only server that listens
only on  of course...they can speak to each other if need
be.  :)
