Advice regarding servers and Wiping Drives after testing

Can someone explain why anything would be left after running :

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda

Wouldn't this write zeros across the entire disk? How could anything
be recovered afterward?

I see osx disk utility can with write zeros once, or write zeros many
times. Is there any advantage in multiple writes?
