How are you starting bind9? That sounds like your 9.12.1 is not being started as root, but 9.12.0 is. Additionally what does your listen-on (and/or listen-on-v6) directive look like in your named.conf file?

a) my script for launching it

cat /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.isc.named.plist

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">

b) Only this one set

listen-on { any; };

Is your macports prefix set to /usr/local? The default macports prefix is /opt/local but that startup script is trying to run /usr/local/sbin/named. You may also want to verify that when you've stopped bind9 @9.12.0 that nothing has port 53 open (sudo lsof -i :53).

As far as I can tell, the bind9 port does not install a file named org.isc.named.plist; instead, it installs a file named org.macports.bind9.plist. So the plist you're looking at and the /usr/local/sbin/named program it's launching don't sound like they came from MacPorts, in which case this ticket should be closed as invalid.
