Using your bind8 named.conf as a starting point prevented you from
finding what appears to be a bind9 directive:

// If named is being used only as a local resolver, this is a safe default.
// For named to be accessible to the network, comment this option, specify
// the proper IP address, or delete this option.
        // listen-on    {; };
        listen-on       {;; };
