BIND and multicast requests

Hi, folks,

[H D Moore, 2008] found that some versions of BIND respond to UDP-based
requests directed to IPv6 multicast addresses.

As far as I can see, this is a bug in BIND (or am I missing something?)
Does anybody knows if this has been fixed? Any bug report or the like
published about this issue?
