Unkillable zombie sshd-s?

I found out today that I have two zombie sshd processes on a busy server
(dozen or so users over ssh, many other services), and I can't kill them.
sshd 38653 0.0 0.0 0 0 ?? Z Mon08AM 0:00.03 <defunct>
sshd 75851 0.0 0.0 0 0 ?? Z 7:33PM 0:00.08 <defunct>
kill -9 doesn't complain, but doesn't do the job either.
Is there a way to find out what has happened and why does the situation
occur? (I can't reboot the server for testing)
