One thing, however. The manual says the highest change_date value (I
assume the highest value from all of the records for the zone) is used if
you set the serial number to zero. It appears that that is not the case,
that the return value from time() is used instead. To make things
consistent, you ought to either change the auto-serial behavior or the
documentation. :)

(Your fix, however, will allow me to do what I wanted to do.)
