create a zfs filesystem in the global zone for the zone. Something like

$ zfs create mypool/export/zones/zone1
$ mkdir -p /export/zones/zone1
$ zfs set mountpoint=/export/zones/zone1 mypool/export/zones/zone1

With zonecfg set your zonepath=/export/zones/zone1

The easiest way is -
$ touch /reconfigure
$ init 6

After the reboot in theory you should see your new device. By memory, you 
should be able to use  the luxadm command to see the failover paths. Are you 
able to do a reboot?? There are a few more commands you need if you can not. I 
am assuming the server is currently not production :)

You should mount /export/home/ftp on your global zone (using ZFS), and then 
define it as a mount point using zonecfg for each of your zones.

I will all look easy and logical once you have done it once.
