No, the views will all share the same process and thread(s), but they are
separate chunks of memory, and simulate being separate servers.

You can specify the view in the reload command:
$ rndc reload example.com in external
You can also configure the zone in one view as a master and the one in the
other view as a slave; then reloading the master will automatically send a
notify to the slave. This involves tsig keys and is kind of fiddly, but
works quite well (I run several zones that way on my home server).
