Thanks for the patch.

Vim already sets the filetype correctly in this case, via the «au
BufNewFile,BufRead zsh*,zlog* call s:StarSetf('zsh')» pattern match in
$VIMRTUNETIME/filetype.vim.  However, I suspect that pattern produces
some false negatives too (e.g., it also matches in cases such as «vim
=(ls)»), so I think this change would be an improvement even for Vim users.

Agreed.  The patch looks good to me, but I haven't time to review or
test it properly, so I'll defer to others on that.
