If named is running and doesn’t respond on the external interface, it’s possible that your listen-on {}; directive is set to only localhost.

TCP connections to come back “Connection refused”, so it’s possible that BIND just isn’t listening on the interface or perhaps you’re filtering the inbound queries.   Do you see the queries come in to the box, either via packet dump or query logs?

This is a clean install of the latest BIND available, after a system upgrade, so there's probably something wrong with my config.  Problem is, I don't know what.  I've been over it dozens of times and am stuck, otherwise I wouldn't have posted here.
