I think you wish to create an etherstub (in-machine "LAN" as it were).  From

	dladm create-etherstub internal0

And once created, you create vnics attached to that etherstub:

	dladm create-vnic -l internal0 stubnet0
	dladm create-vnic -l internal0 stubnet1

And then you assign the vnics to your "have their own subnet" zones like you
would any other nic.  You will also need your global, or even a dedicated
router zone, attach to both the etherstub and the external network (running
ipf or whatever else).

Does this help?
