Z6ii with SB800 Flash

I tried to use my SB800 flash on my Z6ii to shoot a nearly dark event, and the camera refused focus most of the time. Then, I realized the the focus lamp on the SB800 was not coming on. On my Nikon DSLRs, the focus lamp comes on as long as I am in AF-S focusing mode. I made sure I had the Z6ii in that mode, but it doesn't seem to work.

I realize there is a green focus lamp that turns on on the Z camera, but the lens tends to block it so it is not very effective in near dark conditions.

Any idea how to make the red focus lamp on the SB800 come on for focusing in near dark conditions?
