Yes, theoretically, you could use drbd as primary/secondary as backing for ZFS.  But I would caution you against using ZFS on linux.  THIS IS NOT MATURE, and the people who made it usable haven't worked on it since April.  So, it doesn't look like it's actively supported.  I would NEVER use this on a production system.  Instead consider using OpenIndiana and ZFS send and receive instead.
