Afaik zone based firewalling is a feature in IOS. Something like the security (plus) version.
Asa's have their own software.

The zone based firewall one of the firewalls that can be configured on a Cisco router.

You would not be able to configure Zone based firewall on the ASA/PIX. You can however configure the different interfaces of the firewall as having different security levels. The interface with the higher security level is more secure than the interface with a lower security level.

Here is a documetation on ZBF(Zone basede firewall):

The other firewall that can be configured on the router is CBAC(Context Based access control). You will find more information about it here:
