Local zoning in efcm is a library per fabric, while global zoning libraries hold all zones for all fabrics managed by efcm. Depending on your usage there are different reasons to use either. In a several thousand port sans it may be easier to see what zones are in effect with local zoning...I.E. you only see that fabric not zones associated with any other. On the other hand it may be nice to see the second fabric in a pair to copy and rename zones for each side. personal preference as far as your usage.
