If NOTIFYs are working, the reload will have happened almost before he
can change windows to start deleting the zone file on the secondary. In
fact, there's a pretty good chance that the zone file he deletes will
already contain the new data!

It won't hurt to wait ten seconds then look at the zone on the secondary
to see if it has already reloaded. If it hasn't, then by all means get
out the sledgehammer...
