bind comes with 'rndc' utility, check the man pages, I guess you should invoke it with 'refresh' argument.
But this is general advice, as I'm neither sure what have you done exactly onto your system, nor what software and versions you're running.

But I just want add a new host to the primary dns, not a new dns.

This way is possible:
nslookup "PrimaryDNS" "newhost"

and then restart the daemon?
