That's how IV/2SLS and 3SLS work. All exogenous variables show up in
all the first-stage regressions. This point comes up regularly on
Statalist, e.g., Kit Baum's postings:
or the Stata FAQ:

Perhaps I misunderstand the problem, but this is what the coeff on X
will tell you if you estimate using reg3 or ivreg.
Hope this helps.
