BIND can only ever listen on an IP address that belongs to the name server.
listen-on defines the port and IP address(es) on which BIND will listen for
incoming queries. The default is port 53 on all server interfaces. Multiple
listen-on statements are allowed.

I think what you are confusing it with is the allow-query statement which
specifies who is allowed to query your name server.
