Subject: Binding DNS server to a particular IP address

I have two different IP addresses coming into my server.  I need to
guarantee that ISC BIND only monitors and replies to requests coming
from one of the two IP addresses. I can't seem to find a configuration
parameter that tells the server which IP address to listen on.  How do I
configure that?
