No, you can just add it to the zone. Had you delegated a
subdomain your have to add t to the relevant subdomain.

Here is an example using nsupdate.

02:49:35 srw srw $ dig @linux1 eighth-layer.internal axfr -k
dnskey/Ktest.+157+00995.private | grep www

www.www.eighth-layer.internal. 86400 IN A
www.www.www.eighth-layer.internal. 86300 IN A
www.www.www.www.eighth-layer.internal. 86400 IN CNAME
