I assume that you have access on both servers. What BIND version they are using?

The serial number can be any integer. all you need to do is increase that number by 1 so that changes are propagated in the DNS hierarchy.

For this to work one of the servers needs to be master and the other slave. You need to increment the serial number on the master and then do a "rndc reload". This will force a zone transfer from master to slave.
