Do the internal and external versions *both* need to be dynamic? 
I'd expect it to work okay if you had only one of them dynamic, and
sent periodic reload commands to the other one.

The master/slave approach really works better, though.  Something like

    view internal {
        match-clients { !key example-key; localnets; };
        zone {
            type slave;
            masters { localhost key example-key; }

    view external {
        match-clients { any; };
        zone {
            type master;
            file "filename";
            update-policy { grant example-key zonesub ANY; };
            also-notify {; };
