Jails and multicore boxes

I've heard that things like freebsd jails or solaris zones can still
be insecure on multicore boxes because a race condition can occur. I
don't know more details about it other than that. Is this true now on

Also, I have a home server which I'm considering running apache, bind,
dhcp, and possiblty opening ports for some other services. Is it
overkill to run all of these each  in their own jail?
