What you're asking for is essentially the last log entry for this zone.
It might actually be a good idea, assuming NSD is keeping (or can keep)
that data in memory to be able to print out.

A small observation is that NSD doesn't do separate SOA queries before
an XFR. It immediately attempts an XFR over TCP. It looks at the first
packet for the SOA record, and if the serial number is the same, it
abandons the XFR. If the master's serial is higher is completes the XFR.
