LDOMS is not related to the zones other that that it is another way of  
virtualization in a Solaris environment. Every LDOM has its own  
Solaris instance with separate kernels which in turn can contain  
zones. LDOMs are independent OS-instances as long as you are not using  
I/O-domains, in that case all LDOMS depends on a single instance of  
Solaris, but they can be patched individually.

Here is a somewhat outdate blueprint:
