two vlans in solaris zones

running solaris 10 and I have two production zones on the server and two dev zones. And two nics, one on production vlan and one on dev vlan. The default route in the global zone is the production vlan. I'm trying to get the dev zones to route through the dev default route, following this --

In this guy's blog, his two zones don't see each other's vlans. But my dev zones are seeing both the production routes and the dev routes. We have a messy network and have to add a lot of additional routes to our servers, for instance routes to be able to access them from our vpn network. So I have routes on both the prod and dev networks for these additional routes. The problem is I can see both networks from my dev zone. I've forced all my dev routes to go through the dev vlan. So I can ping my dev default route, I can ping my dev firewall, I can ping the DNS server from inside the zone. But nothing outside my zone can see it and I can't ssh out to anything outside the zone.

Is there any way from the global zone to make the prod routes visible only to the prod zones and the dev routes visible only to dev zones, given that the prod routes are also the defaults for the global zone?

Backing up a bit, when you do a 'zonecfg -z <zonename>' and do 'info net' does everything look correct? Does your address line just have the IP or does it also contain the network /23 (or whatever network subnet mask is applicable)?

In our network we've added rules to /etc/ipf/ipf.conf for the zones because of issues with routes.
