I see the problem now.  When using this feature, you must not set the 
'address' parameter.  Instead, only set the 'physical' parameter.

You should specify the use of DHCP either in the zone's file /etc/sysidcfg 
before you boot the zone for the first time, or by using the zone's file 
/etc/dhcp.e1000g0.  See the man page for dhcp(5) for more information.

Also, note that a zone which uses this feature will have *exclusive* access to 
this NIC.  No other zone, even the global zone, will be able to use this NIC.
