Why?  You only need to do a reload if something changed.

A xfer-out will only happen if something has changed.  Reload doesn't change
the SOA serial number, only updates do that.  The slave checks the SOA
record first to see if it needs to do a zone transfer and only does it if the master's
serial number is larger than the slave's.
