As I read Giovanni's mail, I don't think he's referring to the "zone roots on zfs datasets" issues (as described in bug 6356600). I think he's just asking whether a zfs dataset added to a zone's environment via the "add fs" command in the zone's configuration will also appear in that same zone in the new boot environment that results from a lucreate. As far as I know, the answer is yes, but someone more familiar with zones might have to answer for sure. If the zone configuration is stored in a file in the root file system, it would be copied to the new BE, and thus I would expect file systems mounted in the zones in the PBE would also appear in those same zones in the ABE, but I want someone with zones knowledge to confirm this.
