Rebalance replicas within a zone

I have a 6 node cluster that is divided into 3 zones, mapped onto AWS AZs. One zone is imbalanced, with 94 replicas on one server and 2 on another. The node with 94 has two replicas stuck in relocation to the lightly loaded node (for about 2d now).

What's the recommended approach to get a better distribution between the servers?
