xorg.conf(5) says about ServerFlags:

   Options  specified in this section (with the exception of the
   "Default-ServerLayout" Option) may be overridden by Options specified
   in the active ServerLayout section.

In general, ServerFlags is unnecessary.  Just put the options in 

DontZap defaults to off now, but the key sequence has to be set, like 
setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp


Section "InputDevice"
         Identifier  "Keyboard0"
         Driver      "kbd"
         Option      "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
