In order to "hope" to have a non zero result, you would at least need a PDF containing the Z boson in the initial state.
So which PDF are you using?

If you have a valid PDF, it is even likely that we do not support such type of particle in initial state. ( Additionally, DGLAP equation assumes particles to be massless which is not the case for the Z boson...

Cheers,

Olivier
