The default /etc/namedb/named.conf configuration file for BIND says:

| // If named is being used only as a local resolver, this is a safe default.
| // For named to be accessible to the network, comment this option, specify
| // the proper IP address, or delete this option.
|     listen-on   {; };

It looks like if you comment out that option, it will listen on * by
default. You could also add the other IP address on which you want named
to listen.
