named reload and HTTPS certs

There’s been some great discussion lately on enabling DoH with LetsEncrypt certs.

My question is this:  If I renew the cert while named is running and do a reload on it, is that enough to pick up the new certs or do I need to stop/start the named process?

Basically, does reload only reload the zones or the entire config and subordinate files?
