In bind log appears "no longer listening on". After a return to home and connecting switch, BIND does not respond to internal lan for long time till BIND start listening. Or I have to reload BIND service or reload configs with rndc.

This might do it:

options {
	interface-interval 0;

Untested. From the manual:

If set to 0, interface scanning will only occur when the configuration file is loaded. After the scan, the server will begin listen- ing for queries on any newly discovered interfaces (provided they are allowed by the listen-on configuration), and will stop listening on interfaces that have gone away.
