At present there is no way to import a zone file dice notation directly.
But it can still be done.

What you need to do is convert the Zones Dice notation to JellyFish
(.mat) format) and then import that into GnuBG. The most widely used
converter is written by Jim Borror of WingFlyer.

His website is www.wingflyer.com. The converter can be downloaded at:

I should point out that the zones dice notation was  never originally
designed to be used for analysis purposes, and it is "buggy" (Some
entries are invalid), player names don't appear, match length don't
appear, who rolls first each game doesn't appear. Writing an import
feature can be done in GnuBG but it is not straight forward.

On a final note there is a brief entry in the gnubg manual about this
(And it is very terse to say the least):
