texure ceiling

Question on retexturing a ceiling. I have a house that has a stipple ceiling. the previous homeowner painted the ceiling with a semi or gloss paint.
I have moved some walls and filled in some spots where lights used to be.
I have a drywall guy coming next week to retexture the ceiling so its the same. He said to paint over the ceiling with Kilz 2 to seal in the gloss paint so he will skim coat over the Kilz to put on a new finish. will this stick? I don't want to have the new texture flake off in the future.
