Depends. Do your slaves have multiple masters specified? If so, then 
when the primary master is down, at least all of the slaves will 
eventually get refreshed to the latest-available version of the zone 
(assuming you haven't unwittingly "partitioned" your slave communities 
apart). NOTIFY will help speed up that convergence, just as it does in 
the normal case.

There's no point in sending a NOTIFY to a slave that doesn't list you as 
a master, though...
