How you go about this depends on whether your configuration enables
`inline-signing` or not.

If it has inline-signing, you should see in the filesystem that each zone
file has .signed (and possibly .jnl) files alongside. You can update the
zone using

	(edit the non-.signed zone file)
	rndc reload

If it does not have inline-signing I prefer to use `nsupdate` to update
the zones, usually with my `nsdiff` or `nsvi` tools. Or you can,

	rndc freeze
	(edit the zone file)
	rndc thaw

moderate in east, becoming very rough in west. Thundery showers. Good,
occasionally poor.
