That's a bad architecture (multiple masters with no coordination). Don't 
deploy it.

Either use a single master, or deploy one of the solutions which 
actually makes multi-master work, and coordinates changes and zone serial.

Having said that - you can set the zone serial via dynamic update. Just 
add a SOA record with the required serial.
