It is faster with the zonepath on ZFS, but clones are relatively fast on UFS as well. At least sparse zones. On my laptop about 30 seconds or so, last time I actually payed attention. Compared to five to ten minutes if not a clone. What I like about cloaning is that the SMF repository is copied. The initial boot of a cloned zone is the part I really appreciate being accelerated. Plus all the customizations also carried over, of course. On ZFS, with Nevada, a snapshot and then clone is created, so it is very fast.
