you'll need to point the SOA (on your upstream server) to your current
secondary box. you'll also need to find some way to send the
authoritative domain records to your current secondary. then switch
the config on the current secondary to tell it that it is the primary,
and the current primary to be the secondary. then your are done.
if you havent figured it from the above you'll need to have some kind
of administrative access to the secondary box or it wont work.
