Both .bashrc and .bash_profile are usually in the users home directory, and are read after the global configuration files are finished (somewhere in /etc).

.bashrc is read for every new interactive shell
.bash_profile is read for every new login shell

Usually, when you login to a system both are read (as it's both a login shell and interactive). If you only open up a new xterm, only .bashrc is read.

Additionally, there's .bash_logout, which is executed whenever a login shell exits.

and by the way there is nothing specific about these configuration files with Solaris zones or even with Solaris in general.
