My customer has a system with 3 zones.

Zone 1 was created prior to global zone patching.
Zone 2 was created prior to global zone patching.
Zone 3 was created after global zone patching.

Zone 3 inherited the patches in the global as expected.

Zone 1 and 2's  zone path was not available at the time of global zone patching 
because the zone paths are located
on external disks that were unmounted. The external disks that support the zone paths were unmounted because the patches were installed in single user mode per the patch cluster README.

As a result Zone 1 and 2 did not inherit the patches installed in the global.
Zone 2 was re-installed and the patches propagated from the global as expected.

Are there any other workarounds to get a local zone's patches in sync with the 
global  other than re-installation ?
not really, patchrm followed by patchadd is not really recommended in my experience. What patches are out of sync, if only a few basic patches might be ok to patchrm, if so need to ensure 119254/119255 latest is installed.
