Why do I keep getting eventid 409 in the dns event log?

I keep getting the following message in the dns event log. I have checked the settings and restarted all of the dns servers.
Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      DNS
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      409
Date:            2/14/2009
Time:            2:32:00 PM
User:            N/A
Computer:      dc01
The DNS server list of restricted interfaces contains IP addresses that are not configured for use at the server computer.
Use the DNS manager server properties, interfaces dialog, to verify and reset the IP addresses the DNS server should listen on.  For more information, see "To restrict a DNS server to listen only on selected addresses" in the online Help.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Hi Roads Roads,
Yes I had already looked at this but still can't figure it out. When I try to remove the old ip address of our old dc i get the message that The server interfaces cannot be updated because there is an invalid ip address.
Thanks !

Did you tried to switch to all IP address, then to reconfigure the IP's. If not try to configure one of your interfaces with the missing IP, then restart the DNS service and try to remove the faulty IP.

thanks for responding. I have tried to switch to all ip addresses then back to specific ip adresses but no such luck.
K then.
But you also can modify the list in registry:
