Not quite. You haven't quite understood zone signing. Here's a summary:

1. You run ldns-keygen ONCE, to generate your ZSK and KSK.

2. You edit your zone, and then run ldns-signzone on it to sign it, and
load it into NSD.

3. Whenever you change your zone, you re-sign it with ldns-signzone, and
*then* run "nsdc rebuild".
