RFC 1996 deals with messages from a master to its slave(s), so only on the
authoritative side.  Resolvers are zone agnostic, so this can only work
partly and, more importantly, in a controlled environment where the master
knows which resolvers to inform.  Now, in an enterprise environment this
might be the case, but distributing the zone content close to the resolvers
and not caching there might be a better option.
