As Alex pointed out, if the Asterisk server in question needs the phones 
to re-register in order to send them calls, then it probably cannot send 
them SIP NOTIFY requests either.

In addition, this NOTIFY request does not cause a Polycom phone to 
"reset". It instructs the phone to check its provisioning server for any 
changes to its configuration, and if there are any then apply them 
(rebooting if necessary). If the configuration has not changed, sending 
the phone a check-conf NOTIFY should be a no-op.
