Actually, not even that is necessary. A socket on the host bound to INADDR_ANY
is overridden by the more specific IP address in the jail, at least on my 
systems (not using multi IP jails yet, so maybe that's different)

So you can run e.g. sshd on the host and all jails without having to specify
a ListenAddress anywhere. Only thing is that you'll get connected to the host
if sshd in the jail would stop or go down.
