What is a "Two Minded DNS-Server"?

Who can explain this to me and send a sample config for Bind8-DNS Server on SuSE 8.0?

My understanding

The "Two minded" feature means that there will be (2) named processes running
on your machine. One daemon will run and answer DNS queries for the external
interface while the other daemon will answer on the internal interface for the
private network. This setup helps protect your internal network IP addresses
and names from being exposed to people out on the Internet.

Look for Bind9 Howto
