No, that won't work. Reload (kill -1) does not look at the
disk for slave zones.

If one wants to avoid using rndc then the only proceedure is:

stop named
remove the master file
start named

I would however suggest that the OP set up rndc. It works under
windows and is the best tool for controling named.
