Re: Captain America 2: News and Speculation - Part 1
I know, but that's not the point. HYDRA was devoted to Schmidt, and are called a personality cult by characters in-movie.
Therefore, it is very unlikely that there were any of them who had stronger allegiances to Zola than to Schmidt.
Not to mention, Zola himself. He's not the having his own loyalists type. You can see he's terrified of Schmidt, and goes along with everything he says out a sense of self-preservation.
