I had the same argument with an english teacher who claimed that "zdee" was not only the British way of pronouncing "z", but also that it was the correct one regardless of where you speak english. I think he might have been confusing languages, because in spanish, "z" is pronounced different in Spain than in Mexico or even Latin America, and the "zdee" sounds a lot like the Spain's pronunciation for "z""zdee" is not British English. I've never ever heard it pronounced like that. I think probably most Brits say zed rather than zee, but with the influence of US entertainment that is changing.
Reading Touchfuzzy's comment again, probably they called it Em-Zed because of japanese pronunciation. MZ in japanese would sound like "emzetto", hence the Em-Zed Touchfuzzy was razzed about.Little tidbit: It's apparently pronounced Em-Zed.
I was the only American in a voice meeting last night, and I got razzed pretty hard for calling it Em-Zee .
