yes, it's possible. However that would be a HUGE zone and if you made any
mistake, the whole zone would not be accepted and updated. Those are reasons
you better should split it into /24 alias C-class zones.

"rndc reload" should do the job and only it (won't
reload all other zones).

How long did you wait until you queried the server?
And, did you query THIS server?
