How to best configure ZONES services in SonicWall

I manage a SonicWall TZ210 firewall with the following services:
IPS
CFS
Gateway Anti Virus
Gateway Anti Spyware

Each of the above can be "applied" to any LAN, WAN, WLAN, DMZ Zones.

QUESTION: Whats the most effective or best practice for adding the above to the zones.
What I worry about is duplicating efforts with zero gain.
Any thoughts ?  And I would be grateful to hear "why" so I could figure this out for future services.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

do you use the Dmz or wlan zones? Do you want content filtering?

As I understand it, It will apply to anything leaving or entering the zone, so if you put them on the wan zone them anything to the Internet will go through them, but a wlan laptop with a virus attacking the lab zone won't get noticed.

Personally I enable  av and spyware on the lan and wlan zones as those are the zones I want protected. Then I enable cfs and ids on the wan zone as that's the only place I'm content filtering and where attacks come from. I don't use dmz.
