The question becomes how long are you planning for the master to be off line?  
If you are just worried about stale zones you just need to increase your 
expire time so they don't expire.  Only time I would promote a slave to 
master is if the master is going to be down for an extended period of time or 
I need to update DNS record while the master is off-line.
