Sorry if this is a stupid question, but where are the Zone names?
The name is the second parameter after Zone itself:

Zone Buttons
        ButtonNavigator SomeNavigatorUsefulForButtons
        ChannelLeft TrackBank -1
	ChannelRight TrackBank 1
	BankLeft TrackBank -8
	BankRight TrackBank 8
	Rewind Rewind
	FastForward FastForward
	Stop Stop
	Play Play
	Record Record
	MasterFader MasterTrackVolume
describes a Zone named "Buttons".

The two OtherFX.zon files are the same thing, right?
Well, there is nothing that says they have to be , but it's probably a bad idea to have the same filenames contain different contents

Assuming they are the same, yes, the intention is that you can re-use zone files -- there will be no conflicts if they are used with different surfaces as long as the Zone names are unique within that particular surface.

Worth noting -- .zon files can contain more than one Zone definition.

Each surface keeps a dictionary of Zones -- no duplicates allowed in a dictionary.
