Which holds more watter; a banana or a hammer?

An RPZ is a specail type of zone and include statements are ways to 
create a zone from multiple files.

You can easily have your RPZ zone file include contents from other files.

I suspect you are meaning to ask, which performs better, a single RPZ 
covering LOTS of domains, or multiple discreet zones with each covering 
one domain (including sub-domains).  —  I suspect that RPZ will win in 
that I expect it will require fewer resources.  I say this because a 
single RPZ can have records that impact multiple domains in the single 
zone file, compared to needing multiple zones (and files) using the 
traditional non-RPZ method.
