patchadd in the global zone will patch all local zones ( whole or 
sparse) by defalt.

So if you add the recommended cluster it will patch the whole root zone 
as well.
Make sure to apply the latest 119254/119255 ( sparc/x86 )in a seperate 
patchadd session. This patch is the patch utils patch, I suspect that 
the cluster applies it first anyway, but just in case. This will also 
ensure that the zones etc are all available for patching prior to 
applying the cluster itself.
