Use-cases differ of course, but I'm partial to the other way around.   
Put Apache in front of Varnish and Varnish in front of Zope.  And if  
you need load balancing, insert something like Pound between Varnish  
and the Zeo clients (although there is some work in Varnish trunk to  
add load balancing).  This configuration frees up Apache to serve  
other stuff besides the Varnish cached content.
