How many numbers do you need to see on the face of a D20 before you know it's a legal die?

Traditionally a legal die is made so that the sum of any two numbers directly opposite from each other adds up to 1 + the number of sides on the die
(1+6 = 7, 4+3 = 7.) (19+2).
So how many numbers on a die must one see before they can know if a die is legal or not (on a 6-sided, 8, 20, ...)?
Is there an algorithm to state which numbers belong next to which other numbers?
