Yes, the default for bind is to listen on all interfaces. IT is
configurable though.

Which was explained in this thread yesterday

listen-on { 192.168.1.1; };

Solves the problem.

Default is

listen-on { any; };

Which is perfectly reasonable. *Still* having bind *listen* on wlan0
will not effect anything-at-all unless something tells somebody to use
the resolver on that address. Just running a resolver on that interface
won't do anything - and if it is your external interface the firewall
configuration probably blocks all ingress traffic anyway.
