within the boundaries of RFC 2136, prerequisites and updates, the
protocol does not allow operations that go beyond a single node
in the domain tree. Finding the name server targets with a type NS
query before sending the updates should work reasonably well.
Of course, this only makes sense (i.e., can be safely applied)
with a narrow glue policy, that you have indicated your zone
in question being subject to.
