I just installed a zone  and I see the following:
r...@dev:~# svcs -a |grep offline
offline        10:12:09 svc:/system/consolekit:default
offline        10:12:09 svc:/application/graphical-login/gdm:default
r...@dev:~# svcs -vx
svc:/system/consolekit:default (ConsoleKit)
 State: offline since Tue Feb 02 10:12:09 2010
Reason: Dependency svc:/system/dbus is absent.
   See: http://sun.com/msg/SMF-8000-E2
   See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1m console-kit-daemon
Impact: 1 dependent service is not running:

That seems to indicate that gdm will not run in a zone with the default 
I installed the zone and ran 'pkg -R /zones/dev/root install 
to add gdm.
