Bollocks. If you change an arbitrary file in /etc/bind on a setup without
a chroot, you'll have to let bind know, too. Whether you change this file
through rsync or through dpkg makes no difference.

Of course, this assumes that the initscript, run with (force-)reload
as its option will also rsync those files. But that's not really an issue,
is it?
