from "man nsdc":

       update Updates all the slave zones which have allow-notify: from local-
               host ( or ::1) allowed.  If a TSIG key is specified for
               the  allow-notify  statement in the config file, it will be used
               to secure the notify. Note that NSD keeps track of zone timeouts
               automatically, this is only needed if you want to manually force
               updates by sending notify messages to the localhost.

               Another method you can use is to stop nsd, delete the xfrd.state
               file  and then start nsd again. It will try to update all zones.
               This method does not require allow-notify: statements.
