You could have the same file as the base, most definitely.  Sharing a zone file (even without the symbolic link) between zones with bind can be done but gets extremely messy if you ever make a change to the zone file or for one zone explicitly.

The mserver reference in the SOA is treated like the rest of the records in a manually constructed zone file; if it is un-anchored, it will inherit the $ORIGIN.
