Convice Bind to listen on IP alias with a range of IPs.

I must be doing something wrong, because what I want to do doesn't
seem that difficult.

I have a range of IPs bound to a local interface:

lo:1      Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:  Mask:

And I want to convince Bind to listen on sub-set of the given range ( for example ), yet when I configure that IP:

	listen-on {; };

Bind won't listen on that interface:

"named[15035]: not listening on any interfaces"

Bind has no problem listening on however, so there must be
some configuration option I am missing.

Any help is appreciated.
