No, you don't have to.

If you know which zone has changed, than you can do "rndc reload zonename".
If you don't, than "rndc reload" reloads all zones.
You could also try "rndc reconfig", but I think it will only load new zonesm 
the ones just added in configuration, not never wersions of old zones).
