You didn't think that one through.  The zone is not pre-defined so there is
no master. The NOTIFYING server could be a master for all views, or you
may have multiple different masters in each zone of each view. The
NOTIFYING master may be new, so the slave doesn't even know that it
exists before receiving the notify.
