well, this in-the-middle 'nsd' box is actually a VPS-hosted VM slice,
with 4 public, static IPs, (eth0, eth0:1, eth0:2, eth0:3), each in a
completely different subnet.

but, nsd is config'd to listen on only one of those IP interfaces
(eth0), with its two "ip-address:"-specs, on IPv4 & one IPv6.

so, iiuc, i'm still "ok" doing it the way you suggested.

thanks again!
