this feature was one of the main reasons I stopped using BIND.  It has the
side effect that you cannot necessarily set it up on a system which shares
IP addresses using e.g. VRRP, because you cannot be guaranteed that the
system will have the virtual IP address configured at the time that BIND
starts.  Frustrating.
