no with dns on an update to the masters zone
the master sends notifys (to those servers its configured to ONLY, i would guess RPZ providers do not send these to all external slaves)

on receiving a notify OR on a refresh (period defined in the soa of the zone)
(in the case of RPZ zones the most likely)
a slave/secondary server initiates an axfr or ixfr , pull of the zone

so basically your server would pull only (unless other downstream internals wish to axfr/ixfr from it to save external bandwith)

in each
(but why you would want to resolve dns for the general public i dare not guess)
(as opposed to serving your own domains authoritivly)
