I'm not sure if webmin can do this so I would go and edit the file.

vi /etc/bind/named.conf

look for :
        listen-on-v6 { none; };
        listen-on {; };

and change it to something like :
        listen-on-v6 { none; };
        listen-on {;; };

Yes.   SPF.  
This is where you whitelist all the Addresses that are allowed to send email as you.
Example you list your home and office.  Then when someone is pumping out spam from a different IP but claiming to be you people can check your SPF and ignore it

not unless you want it.  It has nothing to do with your original question - so ignore it for the time being.
Read up on it later and decide if you want it
