I guess you want to implement an external check to see if your satellite
hosts are up and reachable from the master?
How I understood what you are trying to implement, this is not possible.
You have a host which belongs to a zone which belongs to one or more
All commands for objects in that zone can only be executed by endpoints
in that zone.
I have solved this issue by also having my satellite hosts in my master
zone (with a reduced amount of services of course).
Also, I recommend you have a look at the "cluster" and "cluster-zone"
commands, which check the icinga2 connectivity between master and
satellites, I would use this as host alive check command instead of SSH,
if you are interested in monitoring the availability of your satellites
