Yes, if your VM host is some system other than your ZFS baremetal storage
server, then exporting the zvol via iscsi is a good choice, or exporting your
storage via NFS. Each one has their own pros/cons, and I would personally be
biased in favor of iscsi.
But if you're going to run the guest VM on the same machine that is the ZFS
storage server, there's no need for the iscsi.
