Thanks, I am aware that Apache can be told to listen only to specific
addresses. Can BIND be told to listen on all addresses? Your post
implies that this is the default (which makes sense, as so does
Apache), maybe I am chasing a non-issue?

In other words, I should configure BIND to answer to exampleA.com and
to exampleB.com with no regard to IP addresses. then in the control
panel for each domain name configure the nameservers to my liking
(with addresses that the server answers to, naturally)? That's it?

There is only one machine. All four addresses point to it.
