I don't think he means that type of bind, I think this is about controlling the source IP address on a connection to force the traffic over a specific NIC. A zeromq bind is not the same thing as binding a source socket to a particular local IP address. I suspect this would take a socket option which could only be used before connect to implement it. For a host where the NICs are on different subnets this would could lead to cases where you cannot make a connection, but for the case where you have multiple NICs on the same subnet and are not using NIC bonding it could be useful for separating traffic.

Yes. You can bind any socket to an interface.

Can a REQ zmq_socket bind to a specific interface?
we know a Ping program, an useful command on Unix, can bind a specific src adress and ping a remote host, using -I option. Can a zmq_socket do the same thing? I don't find it in zmq guide.
( As the Guide says, a REQ zmq_socket connects to a REP zmq_socket )

You can bind to a specific interface (e.g. "tcp://eth0:5550") and connect to specific IP addresses.

I am a fresh programer of 0mq. Could you tell me how to comprehend this feature of 0mq:

  *   It queues messages automatically when needed. It does this intelligently, pushing messages as close as possible to the receiver before queuing them.

For example, I run a 0mq client on one linux machine with multi ip addresses configured using REQ-REP pattern. Different ip address referes to different route information. when zmq client connects to 0mq server on another machine, which ip adrress is binded to the client zmq_socket? Can I program to determine a specific ip so that I can trace the network package it sends.
