Sounds like you are looking for functionality provided by NOTIFY:

notify yes;

You can add this globally in the options{} section of named.conf or turn
it on for selected zones by adding to the zone config. Both servers need
this in their config.

You will need to restart named on each, but from that point on, you
should be able to change the zone on the master and rndc reload
and have the slave pull the new info.
