apt-cache rdepends zeroconf will get you the packages which depend on
zeroconf. then you can march up the tree a bit with

apt-cache rdepends zeroconf | grep -v Depends | xargs apt-cache \

that gets you a much longer list of things that ultimately depend on

for the suggests or recommends, there is surely a way, but I don't
know it and my attempts at grepping, cutting and xarging is getting
out of hand.
