Any time I play alistar, i play him with the full intention to be the main tank and take dmg. Hence, I always go the 0/21/9 build with.

I can see how the CD can be nice though, however, I get enough CD in game items to suffice.

I play with a 0/9/21 with Ghost/Flash and their accompanying masteries. Flash is awesome for a bull-bomb. Ghost is good for catching fleeing babies. Your 'R' makes you tanky enough without pouring masteries into defensive.

I run a 9/0/21 build, but take greed and the teleport mastery. My off 1 point in offensive goes into crit, not that it makes a lot of difference. For runes, I run armor pen marks, dodge seals, and CDR glyphs. I use flat HP quints for that added early game buff.

The added magic penetration from the offensive mastery (can't remember the name) helps farm. Armor penetration helps farm a bit as well as helping to tear down turrets that much faster. They both also have the small bonus of helping that shaco or pantheon get a FB so you guys can steamroll your lane faster.

Note, I do not use Alistar's sheen build. I run chalice for spammability. I also prioritize pulvarize over headbutt, again for farming.

Oh, and in case you hadn't assumed, my summoner skills are teleport and flash. Nothing is funnier than when you teleport right into a skirmish and nobody notices you till they're suddenly airborn.
