Thats not completely accurate to say that a router only provides inbound protection. That would probably depend on the type of firware/software that is used to run the router..
ZA is software firewall, provides inbound and outbound protection. A Router is only going to provide inbound protection. PLus it doesnt hurt to provide an extra layer of security.
My D-Link router has a firewall that can be set for both incoming/outgoing protection. You can restrict certain users/programs from accessing the internet. You can also restrict users from going to certain sites, domains, etc...
As for the original question...I would still leave ZA running.
