i've never seen this problem since i've never used vxfs before.

that's what i'd recommend trying. since you shared the filesystem
from the global zone, that added an extra reference count to it.
when a zone is shutdown, all filesystems are unmounted, and if they
fail to unmount gracefully they are force unmounted. this would
still not remove a reference due to nfs exporting. so this
is likely the cause of the problem your seeing.
