In case you need to have two zimbras running on the same server or even have zimbra running along with other services (apache, mailgate ...) on the same server its still easier to run zimbra inside a VM than to have it run on the real machine cause every zimbra-service binds to every available IP-Adress.
Zimbra itself recommends usage of ESXi for virtualizing its product (see why is binding to a single IP so difficult?)
