networks do not have any affinity to Avaiablity Zones.
there is no mapping between neutron physnets and nova host aggreates which are use to
model aviablityitz zones.

when using tunneled networks like vxlan it is assuems that all hosts in a cloud acorss all avaiablity zones can access
any tenant vxlan network. the same is also ture of vlan or flat network the only excption being that htey have physnet
assocaited with them. physnets may not be aviable on all host but there is corralation between phsynets and aviaablity zones.
unless you manually algin them.
