The simplest thing is to let the software auto-fill the
zone.  Don't even listen for it, unless you're in any
doubt about the callsign, and don't waste time editing
any zone if you hear something different.  We know from
this mailing-list that RST and zone are ignored by CQ for
checking purposes.  You can't "blow it by not logging the
exchange properly" - the "exchange" is dumped.  

The only possible issue with this approach, and it's
minimal for SO, is that you may not be up-to-date with
zone multipliers - especially for North American QSOs.

Your log will be independently rescored, and the only
"hit" is for callsign errors - assuming you logged QSOs
with the correct band and time.

Just get on with it, exchange calls and have fun.
Callsign, Enter, Callsign, Enter . . . .
