The real question is why are you bothering to attempt to
listen on the ppp address. Just have named listen on a
stable interface and advertise its address to the ppp
If you really want named to start listening on the interface
you can lower the interface scanning interval and/or have the
ppp daemon notify named that it has a new interface. rndc
reload / rndc reconfig.
It wouldn't be that hard to add "rndc rescan" to just rescan
the interface table.
Note: you need to be running as root unless you are using a Linux
box w/ capability support.
