I'm aware of a customer that has multiple hundred DRBD resources on ZFS.

ZFS has a FS part and an LV part, it is possible to "break out" block
devices of a zpool. These can then be used as DRBD devices. DRBDManage
knows how to handle that, no difference compared to LVM from a DRBDMange
user's point of view.
