Use VE7CC's software for that.
Better, but a bit of a PITA to set up multiple spot sources. Nonetheless, it does what I wanted.

With DXlab, it looks like I'd have to accept notifications from every unconfirmed spot in my award objectives, which is more than what I wanted at the moment -- to stalk zone 29.

That's not correct. For example, you can configure SpotCollector so that with one click you will see only active zone 29 stations that have been spotted by stations within X miles of your QTH, where X is a number you specify.
Can I configure SpotCollector so that it will only call my cellphone under those conditions? That's what I was looking for.

No. You can configure SpotCollector so that it will only send email when a needed but unworked station has been spotted by a station within X miles of your QTH, where X is a distance you specify.That would included unworked zone 29 stations, but would also include stations in other unworked zones and DXCC entities. It would not include active stations in worked but unconfirmed zones or entities. It would not include active stations in unworked zones or entities that haven't been spotted by a station with X miles of your QTH.

Steve WX2S, I have extended SpotCollector to provide independent control over both email and audio alerts. For example, you can now specify that an email alert should be sent when an active station in zone 29 is spotted by a station within 500 miles of your QTH:

(CQ='29') and (ODX < 500)

If you'd like to give this new version a try, contact me via aa6yq (at) ambersoft.com

Seems to do exactly what I need now. I tried a local test spot with a filter of "(CQ='29')" and it came back almost immediately. Way more info in the IM than VE7CC has too.

I did notice one tiny glitch -- a garbage character in the server name after I installed it.

Thanks for the fast response!

SpotCollector 6.5.4, which provides independent triggering for Audio Alarms and Email Alarms, has been publicly released.

It's free via a<www.dxlabsuite.com>

Thanks, Steve!

I've set CC User to filter all those junk local spots for Italy in the afternoon. Might do same for Spain, with their myriad local spots for castles or something.
Makes far less clutter in the cluster window!

If you're using SpotCollector, the only reason to look at a Cluster window is when "talking" with fellow DXers. You can configure DXKeeper to suppress the raw spots when you do that.

SpotCollector obtains the SFI, A, and K indices from information posted on the spot sources (telnet clusters, packet clusters, DX Summit web cluster) to which it is connected. To what spot sources do you have SpotCollector connected?
