I don't think you want to update the notified_serial; I think what you
want to do is up date the serial in the SOA for the zone you want to
transfer, then use pdns_control to notify your slaves:


That's my guess at least.

Also if you update the SOA serial your notifies will go out to the
hosts listed as NS for the zone every slave-interval.
