You should be able to do it by running 2 instances of bind with
different configs - one bind listening only on eth0, other listening
If seperation of the data being served is necessary (I still can not see
any reason to do so except in teh case of resolver versus authoritative
name servers) then if your BIND is new enough you can simply use view's
instead of running two separate processes.
