It's the loopback network. What other server could it be?
As others pointed out, this is apparently a Linux extension to the
loopback interface -- giving it a wider subnet mask automatically
aliases the other addresses in the range. But this is done in a way
that BIND can't take advantage of through the normal socket calls.
