After rebooting I have to do the following on the box.

On the host:
hulk# zfs jail 4 zfspublic/batman

This allows the jail with id4 (called batman) to talk to the zfs pool.

On the jail:

batman# zfs mount -a

Only after that the zfs pool/storage is available from within the jail.

I did have a quick look to see if I could add something to the rc.zfs file
but it's a bit tricky, depending on when the zfs is started/loaded and
when the jails are initialised. You can only jail zfs when the jail in
which you want to use zfs is already running. Please correct me if I am

Fortunately I do not reboot that often ;-)
