Currently, ipkg zones employ manual syncing. The zones do not automatically update when pkg image-update is executed on the system. You must manually update the zones after rebooting to keep them in sync with the global zone.
To manually update zones after rebooting, use thezoneadm detach and attach commands with the -u option.
Run pkg image-update and reboot onto the new image, then detach the zone and use zoneadm attach with the -u option. See About Migrating a Zone for more information on these commands.
Also note that the dry-run installation feature of pkg install does not work in Oracle Solaris Zones.
