Zones that are not native zones are branded zones. Branded zones on Solaris 10 include Solaris Legacy Containers, previously known as Solaris 8 Containers and Solaris 9 Containers. That add-on product allows you to run Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 application environments under a thin layer of virtualization provided by the brands framework. solaris8 and solaris9 branded zones can be patched independently of each other and of the global zone.
Yes, if you have branded (non-sparse) zone!
