I just noticed that the named instance I have running in my dom0 is only
listening on some addresses.

Netstat -ln shows the following relevant listeners:

tcp  0      0*                   LISTEN
tcp  0      0*                   LISTEN
tcp  0      0*                   LISTEN
tcp  0      0 ::1:53                :::*                        LISTEN
tcp  0      0 ::1:953               :::*                        LISTEN
udp  0      0*
udp  0      0*
udp  0      0 ::1:53                :::*

What's missing from this list is -- the primary IP for the dom0!

(Bridged network configuration, obviously!)

Which explains why from various domUs and from outside boxes I can't in
fact use the DNS server on this machine.

My DNS config seems compatible with the "caching-only" nameserver config
in the Bind admin manual (with more zones pre-loaded).  It's what's
installed by default in Centos 5.whatever I believe.  It doesn't contain
an "allow-query" clause; the doc says the default for allow-query is

Is anybody else running named in caching-only mode in a Xen dom0?  Or at
least a domU?  I suspect this is some intersection of xen and named
behavior, but there must be lots of people here running caching-only
nameservers, so somebody must have a working example they could show me?
