You should use match-destinations in the view definition. (The match
is on the destination of the query, i.e. on which of the the nameservers's
own addresses it arrived on.)

Thinking in terms of "listen-on" was a category error. Views don't
have separate listening apparatus. Instead the queries that come
in are farmed out to the views on the basis of their matching
