Without resolving the NS records, PowerDNS does not know where to send
the NOTIFYs, and thus cannot send them.

However, it's not great that pdns_control is waiting for this, because,
as you have seen, this can take quite some time. You could file a
request at https://github.com/PowerDNS/pdns/issues/new/choose to make
the behaviour smarter - perhaps delaying the resolving until after
pdns_control has returned? I don't know yet.

I doubt you own xxx.com. Please do not edit log messages, at all, when
asking for help here. To understand why, please see
