listen-to clusterIP address

Hi Paul,

BIND will rescan the interfaces automatically - I think by default every 60 minutes. If a listen-on address becomes available it should be used.

It would probably be better to automatically trigger a reconfig, but you can lower the scan time with the "interface-interval" option. I haven't had any problems setting it to 1 minute in situations that require it.

Subject: listen-to clusterIP address

Hi. I have a two node active passive cluster serving webpages. When a
  failover occurs, I have to restart named on the now active node because
  the cluster Ip was not available when named originally started even
  though I have listen-to the cluster ip listed in my named.conf. Is there
  a way to make named listen-to an ip address that is not yet available?
  Thanks. Paul
