Did I miss something... what does ICMP ping have anything to do with bind?

You can even ping computers when the system is otherwise completely unresponsive.  And, bind doesn't do anything that would affect network interfaces behave.... (a host based firewall would though....)

This sounds more like a network configuration problem..... my guess its a dual homed server, and the internal IP is its primary interface and its responding with primary rather than the same IP.  Alternatively, its a NAT situation...and the NAT isn't doing translations of the ICMP correctly?
