Your code does achieve the immediate goal of aligning the zeroes, but at a higher variance in one of the series, such as below, the left axis can easily look ridiculous.

*************
clear*
set seed 123456
set obs 100
gen time=_n
gen serie1=rnormal()
gen serie2=rnormal(3,5)

reshape long serie, i(time) j(nr)

sum serie

tw ///
|| line serie time if nr==1, yaxis(1) ///
|| line serie time if nr==2, yaxis(2) ///
|| , yscale(range(`=r(min)-1' `=r(max)+1') axis(1)) ///
yscale(range(`=r(min)-1' `=r(max)+1') axis(2)) ///
yline(0)
*************

Perhaps something along this lines

-------------------------------------------

clear*
set seed 123456
set obs 100
gen time=_n
gen serie1=rnormal()
gen serie2=rnormal(1,2)

reshape long serie, i(time) j(nr)

sum serie

tw ///
|| line serie time if nr==1, yaxis(1) ///
|| line serie time if nr==2, yaxis(2) ///
|| , yscale(range(`=r(min)-1' `=r(max)+1') axis(1)) ///
yscale(range(`=r(min)-1' `=r(max)+1') axis(2)) ///
yline(0)
