A Further Question about query-source

I have DNS severs with multiple addresses.  They are running 9.7.1-P2.
On the servers I have


to tell BIND to use one of the DNS addresses for its queries.
Yesterday on the box I issued

     dig example.com @someserver.example.com

and the query was sent using the non-DNS address.  I expected the
"query-source" directive to send the query over the
IP address and not one of the other three addresses on the box.
Is "query-source" not honored because I specified the DNS server
I wanted to query?  Thanks.
